Mister Max: The Book of Lost Things

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • Whether it’s finding a good home for a lost dog, facilitating the reunion of disappointed lovers, or recovering a long-lost heirloom, Max displays good sense, a sensitive nature, and winning ingenuity. He resists being labeled a detective and since he merely guides people toward the resolution of their troubles, it’s fitting that he calls himself a "solutioneer." By book’s end, however, he has not answered his own questions. Readers still don’t know what has happened to his parents, for example. This will likely leave them strangely contented, knowing that Voigt has so much more to reveal in the sequels to this comedic page-turner. – School Library Journal
