Wordstock Spotlight: The Brixton Brothers by Mac Barnett


Our features on YA authors coming to Wordstock Festival in Portland, Oregon this October 9th-10th continues today with Mac Barnett and his Brixton Brothers series!

Brixton Brothers #1: The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity

Will Steve solve his first case? Since when can librarians rappel from helicopters? If Steve’s an only child, then why is this series called the Brixton Brothers? You will solve all these mysteries and more by the time you finish this book. We think you’ll agree: Steve Brixton’s first adventure is his best adventure yet.
Brixton Brothers #2: The Ghostwriter Secret
Steve Brixton is fast becoming America’s top detective. After saving the United States of America in The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity, he has opened his own agency. Steve gets a call to solve the case of the Fairview diamond but it turns into an even bigger mystery. MacArthur Bart, author of Steve’s beloved Bailey Brothers series, has been kidnapped!! And there is only one 12-year-old detective who can find him. But not without the help of his best chum Dana and The Bailey Brothers Detective Handbook. Full of run-ins with goons, bullys, and the B. Syndicate (or is that Bee Syndicate?), The *Ghostwriter Secret will keep everyone laughing with suspense.Remember The Hardy Boys? The Brixton Brothers are NOT them. But they do find themselves in some hilarious hijinks.
*Please note Steve encounters no specters in the course of this book.

Mac Barnett is also known for being a pretty funny guy, and I can’t wait to see what he brings to Wordstock.
