About the Author

Casey Lyall (5'4", brown hair, blue eyes, no known aliases) is a middle-grade writer from Southwestern Ontario. She works at her local library where she runs a number of teen groups and waits for management to discover they're actually paying her to have fun. When she's not writing, Casey loves to bake, watch an "unhealthy" amount of movies and television, and of course, read. She'd consider adding detective work to the list if she could find a proper coat. You can find her on Twitter as @CKLyall and at caseylyall.com.

Reviews

Praise for HOWARD WALLACE, P.I.

*". . . an absolute delight . . . Banter between Howard and Ivy is snappy . . . a solidly entertaining introduction to hard-boiled detectives." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (STARRED REVIEW)

"Strong writing, relatable themes, and a solid mystery combine for a read that both boys and girls will have trouble putting down." --School Library Journal

"Lyall neatly juggles several plotlines . . . Give this to fans of Encyclopedia Brown who are looking for longer (and funnier!) well-plotted mysteries." --Booklist

"Lyall's debut is a winner." --Publishers Weekly

". . . Enough realistic kid detecting to keep young PIs turning pages. . . . the mystery is engaging . . . Likely to see sequels; Howard and Ivy deserve them." --Kirkus Reviews

"Full of surprises and humor, Howard Wallace, P.I. will delight any lover of detective stories." --Sheila Grau, author of the Dr. Critchlore's School for Minions series
