In this third volume of the Saxby Smart: Private Detective series, Saxby solves three more daunting cases: The Pirate’s Blood, The Mystery of Mary Rogers, and The Lunchbox of Notre Dame. With the help of his Thinking Chair (located in his headquarters/parents’ tool shed), his sharp mind, and his two best friends, Saxby proves once again that age makes no difference when it comes to cracking the case.

Praise for The Pirate's Blood and Other Case Files

Praise for The Treasure of Dead Man’s Lane and Other Case Files (Book 2):

 

“The canny preteen sleuth introduced in The Curse of the Ancient Mask and Other Case Files returns for three more unusually meaty mysteries—all solved with a combination of sharp observation and sharper deductive logic—in this second book in the Saxby Smart, Private Detective series. Outstanding fare for young armchair Sherlocks.” —Booklist, starred review


“Middle-grader Saxby Smart is back in his Thinking Chair for three more stories in this second volume of his mystery series. Generously dappled with Alley’s breezy line drawings, the cases are timely and twisting enough to keep the light bulb bright in the young sleuth’s mind.” —Kirkus Reviews
