Editorial Review

Featured on Amazon.com’s Best Books of February 2021 (Ages 6-8)

"This story is a winner for new readers and aspiring gumshoes alike. Readers will look forward to seeing more of this entertaining detective duo in the future. It’s no mystery — all clues point to fun!" —STARRED REVIEW, Kirkus Reviews

"Atkinson’s unfussy panels abound with pop culture references for full comedic and cinematic effect, adeptly balancing humor with heart." —Publishers Weekly

"This gem of an early grade graphic novel balances blatant goofiness with droll humor. . . . Aspiring detectives may not find a professional mentor in the two pals, but they’ll find plenty of good fun." —Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
“With cute illustrations (who can resist an apple-cheeked ghost and a big-eyed pug?) and funny banter, Super Detectives! is sure to be a hit with fans of other graphic-novel style books like Narwhal and Jelly.” —CM Magazine
"Just when you think that the story could not possibly surprise you with another zig, Atkinson’s storytelling zags once more, bringing the reader perpetual delight until the very last page.” —The Comics Journal
