About the Book
Title: Josh and the Gumshoe News Crew: The Super Secret | Author: Melissa Perry Moraja | Publication Date: May 5, 2014 | Publisher: Melissa Productions | Pages: 154 | Recommended Ages: 6+ (read-aloud)
Summary: Up until a few days ago, nothing extraordinary had ever happened in ten year old Josh Wunderkind’s life – except eating a whole pot of pasta by himself. But that all changed after a mammoth-sized bird hit him smack on the face with a glob of neon green bird poop, triggering his superhuman Wunderkind ability and leaving him with the responsibility of caring for a baby bird he named Max. Now Josh was just like his older brother and twin sister Madison-super extraordinary! But what Josh didn’t realize was that being superhuman wasn’t all fun and games.
And things only got more complex in Josh’s life when his two siblings and a couple neighborhood friends persuade him to lead a super crime-solving, neighborhood news team—the Gumshoe News Crew. But not before they agree on the Super Secret and complete Gumshoe Boot Camp.
Find out what the Super Secret is. Will the Gumshoe News Crew complete boot camp? Or will Josh let his team down?

Josh and the Gumshoe News Crew by Melissa Moraja was a laugh-out-loud, enjoyable story for both my eleven year old daughter and me. The illustrations were a fun addition to the story. It was an interesting story that entertained us both. We couldn’t wait to learn more about the Super Secret. I liked that the story had a lesson, too. This is the first Wunderkind book we’ve read, but I don’t think it will be the last. It was just the right length for us to be able to easily read it together over a couple evenings.

I also loved that it could be read aloud over a few days. It’s getting increasingly difficult to find a read-aloud book that both my 11 year old daughter and my 7 year-old son enjoy, and all the Wunderkind Family books seem to be good for a range of ages as well as both genders. Glad you and your daughter enjoyed it. Thanks for taking part in the Josh and the Gumshoe News Crew Blog Tour.
