Annabelle Adams

If you haven’t been keeping up (who has?), we have published a book called The Real McCoys. It’s a great book, a book we like, blah blah blah, I feel like we’ve mentioned it here A. COUPLE. TIMES. BEFORE. But that’s just background intel for this post. If your curiosity is piqued, go on, go ahead and buy the book, but this post (this post!) is about Annabelle Adams, Girl Detective – Moxie’s favorite supersleuthing hero, who at least deserves her own blog entry!

Annabelle Adams is a butt-kicking, feisty, smart and indomitable 12-year-old who gets conscripted to save the world from the ruinous machinations of Dr. Fungo, the short, googly-eyed madman, who, not to take the bad guy’s side, is kind of a creative genius.

She’s recruited by the mysterious Em:

the inventive Floyd:

and the ninja-like ninja (named Ninja):

Great hijinx ensue and many cats run wild, are tamed, and run wild again.

The whole thing is kind of like if they took James Bond and went farther in the direction of “gondola hovercraft zipping through the streets of Venice” instead of “more and more sad faces with Daniel Craig”.

And here’s the good news:

The good news is, we are releasing Annabelle Adams chapter by chapter over on the Real McCoys blog. Every two weeks you’ll get a new installment. We totally forgot to update you over here, so lucky for you, you don’t have to wait for Chapters 1-5, which are currently up at THIS LINK.

Go read, enjoy, and like the Real McCoys facebook page if you’d like to keep up-to-date on chapter releases. If you don’t enjoy it, that’s okay too. Daniel Craig needs his fanbase too.

    I am a retired school librarian who reviews books for Denver Public Schools. I just finished The Real McCoys and loved it! I thought the the marriage of text and illustration was brilliant, and Moxie and Milton are wonderful. Thanks for contributing your talents to our students!
