The Curious Disappearance of Professor Brown

Tim Flanagan's new children's book, The Curious Disappearance of Professor Brown a Lawrence Pinkley Mystery is a great read. Even the most reluctant reader will find something in this book that will get them wanting to read. It has mystery, humor, and it's paced perfectly so there aren't any parts that drag.
The reader is taken on twists and turns with private investigator Lawrence Pinkley as he searches for Professor Brown. We are passengers on the thrill ride that is this book as the mystery unveils itself.  The reader will in one moment be laughing, and then in the next moment will be drawn into the suspense of the story.
Mr. Flanagan has created a children's book that will entertain and leave the reader wanting more of these books.
The illustrations add so much to the story. The colors pop off the page, and they help bring bigger than life characters into reality.  Bravo to Tim Flanagan for creating a story for children that is interesting and creative.
