About the Author

Lewis B. Montgomery is the pen name of a writer whose favorite authors include CSL, EBW, and LMM. Those initials are a clue--but there's another clue, too. Can you figure out their names? Lewis lives in eastern Pennsylvania and also writes under the pen names Eleanor May and Nan Walker. Amy Wummer has illustrated more than 50 children's books. Amy and her husband, who is also an artist, live in Pennsylvania.


Milo enjoys his week at camp across the lake from the girls' camp and his sleuthing partner, Jazz. When his bunk's moose mascot goes missing, he must solve the case on his own with only Jazz's letters for help. Accompanied by ink and wash illustrations, the story isn't deep but it is lively. An epilogue includes puzzles and brainteasers. --The Horn Book Guide

Intrepid detectives Milo and Jazz return in this sixth entry in the Milo and Jazz Mysteries series. Milo, away at a summer camp for boys, is at the center of this mystery. When his team's mascot goes missing, the team's chance for victory is compromised. Jazz, away at a nearby girls' camp, makes a brief appearance at the end of the book, arriving in the nick of time to help Milo solve the case. The short, easy chapters are accompanied by fun pen-and-ink illustrations that enhance the story. This early chapter book mystery is engaging, providing a case to solve that is age appropriate. Numerous clues are provided, a red herring is present, and the mystery has a surprising twist at the end. Though part of a series, this title can be read independently. Like the Doyle & Fossey Science Detectives series, by Michele Torrey, and the Jigsaw Jones Mystery series, by James Preller, this series provides super sleuthing strategies at the end of the book so that readers can hone their own detective skills. --Booklist
