Max Archer, Kid Detective: the Case of the Recurring Stomachaches by Howard Bennett, MD (Imagination Press, 2013)
What an awesome concept for tackling a common childhood problem! Max Archer, Kid Detective is on the case! This funny, candid approach to intestinal trouble packs in an amazing amount of information. When Max discovers Emily Banks has stress related stomachaches, he offers some great self-help ideas to resolve the problem. Not only does the story itself supply a plethora of facts but supplemental material at the back of the book manages to be funny, gross, and informative all at the same time! Bennett conveys his formidable medical knowledge with real kid appeal. This would be a great addition to any school or public library!
