Description


The sequel to the critically acclaimed The Real McCoys!

When a baffling mystery strikes Tiddlywhump Elementary, sibling detectives and absolute opposites Moxie and Milton McCoy are on the case. She's the doer. He's the thinker. She's the heart. He's her heartburn.

Moxie's friend Emily has received a suspicious letter signed with nothing but a sinister purple squiggle. Then more letters arrive—along with more questions. Who sent them? What do they mean? Is the world on the brink of collapse?

Milton and Moxie are the perfect problem-solving team...if only they could get along.When their partnership falls apart, Moxie races to identify the mysterious Squiggler first—while learning the hard way that two McCoys really are better than one.

With energetic illustrations on every page, Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr's Two's a Crowd is a vivaciously funny and irresistibly heartfelt mystery for young readers.

A Junior Library Guild Selection

Praise for Everywhere, Wonder:

"A sweeping exploration of imagination, appreciation, and possibility."—Publishers Weekly

“Swanson's fanciful and whimsical exploration of the meeting of imagination and story is strengthened by the jewel-toned colors and sheer scope of Behr's illustrations.” —Kirkus Reviews

"A tribute to the power of imagination awaiting those who are open to the marvels that surround them." —School Library Journal"

Praise for Babies Ruin Everything:

"Babies Ruin Everything speaks to that older brother or sister, telling them, simply: 'I hear you. This is hard' This is a wonderfully empathetic and funny book that doesn't talk down to older siblings and their real struggles having their world turned upside down. I love my little sister, but if I was still three, I'd probably be trying to sell her to you." —Kate Beaton, author and illustrator of The Princess and the Pony and the #1 New York Times bestseller Hark! A Vagrant

"A fun read that can empower big sisters and brothers to make the most of their new family roles." —School Library Journal
