In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Muddy Max – The Mystery of Marsh Creek by Elizabeth Rusch, illustrated by Mike Lawrence – Graphic Novel – This is a quick, interesting graphic novel about a boy who grows up with parents who insist on him avoiding all mud, in a muddy community. He comes to an age where this limit frustrates him and he rebels… and finds out the mud gives him curious super powers. He starts unraveling secrets and a mysterious family history that is quite fun to follow as a reader. Very exciting that this is a local Oregon author. Also appreciate that this book has won some awards too!
Goodreads Summary: “Every kid dreams of having super powers–Max discovers he really has them! But will he be able to solve the mystery behind Marsh Creek?
Max may be the cleanest middle-school kid in the world–his mysterious, neat-freak parents make certain of that. But when he finds himself face down in a murky puddle, muddy from head to toe, he makes a discovery any filthy child would envy: Mud gives him superpowers. With help from his tech-savvy friend Patrick and a spunky tomboy named Irie, Max uses his new abilities to uncover the secrets of mud-covered Marsh Creek–and maybe save a few lives in the process.”
