Reviews for You Have to Stop This


Booklist Reviews 2011 December #2
Cass, Max-Ernest, and Yo-Yoji are on yet another search for "the Secret." In this fifth and final (maybe not!) book in the Secret series, Cass accidentally breaks a finger off a mummy in a natural-history-museum exhibit. The trio's adventures begin when the mummy goes missing and they must find it to clear themselves before eighth-grade graduation. Bosch interjects "warnings" to readers and gives footnote explanations of starred words. Ford's illustrations introduce each chapter and aptly set the mood. Readers who followed the children in previous escapades know what to expect: quirky humor, light suspense, and magic. No disappointments here. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring
A stolen mummy with a missing finger leads Cass, Max-Ernest, and Yo-Yoji on a quest to recover the Egyptian relic and to unwrap its connection to the immortality-seeking cult that sparked the trio's earlier escapades. Secrets left unrevealed in this final volume may frustrate readers, but the series' trademark mix of mystery, puzzles, and puns should please them nonetheless.
