What are people saying about the book?

“It laughed the snot out of me!” Nikolai, aged 8.

“A witty, warm-hearted, and wonderful book about kids solving the most important mystery of all: what it means to be a friend.” —Kristen Kittscher, author of The Wig in the Window

“Tracy and Ralph join the tradition of literary friendships like Frog and Toad’s, Charlotte and Wilbur’s, Anne and Diana’s—the friendships kids never forget. MacKnight’s debut sparkles with the soul of middle grade and will leave readers everywhere longing for more.” —Janet Sumner Johnson, author of The Last Great Adventure of the PB&J Society

“McLeod MacKnight has created a lovable cast of characters—a girl fascinated with musicals and classic movies, a best friend who dreams of being a famous chef, and one very determined little brother. A humorous and touching story about true friendship, and being proud of who you are.” —Dee Romito, author of The BFF Bucket List

“A fun and fast-paced mystery filled with friendship troubles, an annoying younger brother, and a mysterious bag of cash.” —Lee Gjertsen Malone, author of The Last Boy at St. Edith’s

“It’s a Mystery, Pig Face! has all the things I want in a book: humor, drama, secrets, adventure, and a kid called Pig Face. MacKnight has woven a sweet tale of friendship and family, first crushes and rivalries, all centered around a mystery full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Tracy, her younger brother Lester, and her best friend Ralph are wonderful, quirky, well-rounded characters with just enough misguided good intentions to get themselves into a heap of trouble and the heart and determination to find their way back out again. I also love that the adults in the story have real lives and feelings and play an important role in how everything unfolds. If you’re looking for a great middle grade mystery that will keep readers glued to the page, this is the book for you.” —Wade Albert White, author of The Adventurer’s Guide to Successful Escapes
