Summary Rory Branagan Detective Detective Rory Branagan #1,
Story It jumps around it ebbs and flows the mood is haphazard and the whole thing is an energetic rollercoaster ride Since Rory is a decent relatable kid the overall effect is upbeat and authentic in an exaggerated and manic way And since the overall story arc for the six books in this series has to do with how and why Rory s Dad disappeared there s some shameless heartstring tugging going on as wellI have no idea where to put the reading demo here It could be for ambitious ounger readers who are willing to let some of the bits go over their HEADS OR IT COULD BE FOR OLDER AND CONFIDENT or it could be for older and confident who don t mind the sketchy art and the Vol au-dessus d'un nid de coucou youngish main characters Either way this was enough knuckleheaded fun that I d be happy to try this first volume on any kid just to see if it clicked As I said I thought it was a goofy hootPlease note that I received a free advance will self destruct in x days Adobe Digital copy of this book without a review reuirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review Apart from that I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book It was a fun read I liked the style of writing and the plotHighly recommendedMany thanks to the publisher and Edelweiss for this ARC all opinions are mine Rory Branagan will forever hold a specical place in my heart After reading a couple of dozen pages of this goofy illustrated tale about a kid detective I passed it on to my almost 7ear old grandson who is reading pretty well but has never previously attempted anything thicker than a picturebook or slim easy reader Over the next week he read all 352 pages about Rory Branagan s first case and then demanded to know about getting a copy of the second book in the series RTCI feel like there was a pretty big disconnect between the language suitable for 6 and the story 8 or 9 due to content and there were a lot of cringey momentsOn the plus side it s illustrated and in a similar silly style to the Treehouse and WeirDo booksBut if ou re looking for a silly RORY BRANAGAN DETECTIVE Full disclosure I only review books I love As a kid I snapped up mystery and detective series like Harriet the Spy In fact I wanted to BE a real life version of Harriet the Spy and I still dream of writing a funny zesty child detective series I adore Rory Branagan Detective and his loyal companions some human "some dogsThe Rory Branagan books I dole them out currently on Book Two in the series are perfect for " dogsThe Rory Branagan books I dole them out currently on Book Two in the series are perfect for who love graphic novels laughter and actual mysteries They re also perfect for grownups who love the same things Ill Rory Branagan was three when his father left He s now ten and no one tells him anything Rory lives with his mother older brother Seamus who kind of looks like a banana with stick figure arms and legs and Auntie Jo who isn t really an AuntieRory s best friend is Wilkens Welkin a sausage dog owned by elderly neighbourbabysitter Mrs Welkin Rory is also friends with Corner Boy who stands on a corner spear in hand ready to hit ou with it if Khaiye Aur Vajan Ghataiye you go near him without asking first Corner Boy s father seems to make a living by selling unpackaged goods that may have fallen off the back of a truckCassidy Corrigan or Callaghan depending on which of the two surnames she uses to introduce herselfou believe and her parents have just moved in next door Their house was previously empty for three Tales from a Pilots Logbook years and this empty home used to be the biggest mystery on Rory s street After spotting Rory spying on her pa.
