Join us at Brazos Bookstore for an event with author/illustrator, husband/wife duo Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr, as they present their series: The Real McCoys. This is a family-friendly event.

Her name’s Moxie. Moxie McCoy.

Bold, opinionated, and haplessly self-confident, the world’s greatest fourth-grade detective faces her biggest challenge! When someone kidnaps beloved school mascot Eddie the Owl, Moxie is on the case—but she’s forced to fly solo now that her best friend (and crime-solving partner) has moved away.

Moxie must interview her classmates—both as potential new best friends and as possible suspects. She finds clues and points fingers but can’t save the owl on her own. Enter Moxie’s little brother, Milton. Quiet, cautious, and boring as a butter knife, he’s a good listener.

Can the Real McCoys form an unlikely alliance and solve the crime of the century?

Bursting with interactive illustrations on every page, Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr’s The Real McCoys delivers clever storytelling, laugh-out-loud humor, and heartwarming insight.


Matthew Swanson and Robbi Behr spend all day, every day, making stuff together, including their debut trade picture book Babies Ruin Everything, picture book Everywhere, Wonder (February 2017), and middle grades series The Real McCoys (fall 2017). In addition to speaking and teaching on collaboration and creative entrepreneurship, raising three small children, and fishing commercially for sockeye salmon on the Alaskan tundra each summer, Matthew and Robbi run Bobbledy Books (an indie press offering picture books and music for kids) from the hayloft of their home/barn/studio on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
