Mister Max: The Book of Lost Things

Cynthia Voigt

Max Sterling's theatrical parents have been invited to India to start a new acting troupe. When Max arrives at the dock to join them he discovers there is no ship and his parents have disappeared. Puzzled yet determined, Max stays with his grandmother and tries to support himself. His new talent seems to be solving other people's problems: he recovers a valuable spoon, finds a missing dog, reunites lost lovers. Max's good sense and ingenuity combine to make him the perfect "solutioner." Newbery Award-winning Voigt has created an endearing protagonist and a clever story that is the beginning of the Mister Max trilogy. Ages 8-11
