The Horn Book Guide
“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

Numerous clues are provided, a red herring is present, and the mystery has a surprising twist at the end…. This series provides super sleuthing strategies at the end of the book so that readers can hone their own detective skills.” —Booklist
