Chan is back with a sequel to his award-winning juvenile romp The Mystery Of the Frozen Brains. This time Marty and his buddy Remi are in deep cover as they solve the mystery of the Graffiti Ghoul.
Nine-year-old Marty and his francophone buddy, Remi Boudreau, stumble upon graffiti on the school’s equipment shack and begin the adventure of tracking down the culprit. Marty spies on his classmates, wears his mom’s dress to go undercover, and risks losing his best friend as the mystery of the graffiti ghoul leads him to the graveyard. With continued insight into a Chinese boy’s life in a Francophone town in rural Alberta, Chan sensitively portrays the differences of both the real and perceived fears of “the outsider”: someone who knows the injustice of bigotry and the unfairness of poverty. Chan’s humour balances the serious themes of bullying and racism that are revealed in the attitudes and actions of elementary school kids. Recognized as contemporary versions of the Hardy Boys detective novels, the books in Chan’s Mystery Series are first-rate entertainment and highly recommended for kids.
