REVIEWS
"There is an old-school charm to this novel, with a touch of witty-humor (at times “bathroom-humor”) that makes for a great read for middle-schoolers. And of course it does not hurt that the illustrations are their own little masterpieces..." (Elsa Takaoka, picturestoryebook.com)

"Tim Flanagan's new children's book, The Curious Disappearance of Professor Brown is a great read. Even the most reluctant reader will find something in this book that will get them wanting to read. It has mystery, humor, and it's paced perfectly so there aren't any parts that drag.We are passengers on the thrill ride that is this book as the mystery unveils itself. The reader will in one moment be laughing, and then in the next moment will be drawn into the suspense of the story." (Maria Foley, Book Junkies)

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
When I was a child I enjoyed looking at the artwork that went with the books I read, especially those that had some hidden information that added an extra layer to the story. And that was something I wanted to recreate with The Curious Disappearance of Professor Brown. Writing can sometimes be a lonely occupation, but teaming up with someone as talented and inspiring as Dylan Gibson, has made this book a complete joy to work on. Dylan's illustrations bring an added dimension to the story that make the characters take on a life all of their own.
