The Real McCoys

Bursting with interactive illustrations on every page, Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr’s The Real McCoys delivers clever storytelling, laugh-out-loud humor, and heartwarming insight for young readers.

Bold, opinionated, and haplessly self-confident, Moxie McCoy is the world’s greatest fourth-grade detective. Her little brother Milton is quiet, cautious, and boring as a butter knife, but he’s a good listener. Together, they solve the school’s biggest mysteries, deducing clues with elementary ease.

“Swanson’s witty text is enhanced exponentially by Behr’s bold, original artwork to create a uniquely told whodunit with wide appeal…An exceptional book.”—Booklist (starred review on The Real McCoys)
