Moonbeam Spirit Award (Gold) Learning Magazine Teachers' Choice Award for the Family The book puts [bedwetting] in context: 'five million kids in the United States...go to bed...not knowing if they will wake up wet or dry.' What follows is a clear plan ably complemented by Gerrell's superb cartoon illustrations of Max and Billy on the case as they investigate the digestive system, how a bladder works and ways to better signal the brain to get up and go. At the back of the book there is extra information about pooping and its impact on bedwetting, a word search about proper foods to eat and a 'Q&A About Bedwetting (Just for Parents!)' Even if there were not an alarming dearth of titles on this subject aimed at kids, this would stand out as a most thorough, highly readable resource. --Kirkus Reviews This book is written in a witty, easy to read format with lots of great illustrations and charts to help kids learn. The book is the perfect first step to tackling bedwetting, as it gives kids many practical solutions they can try. If your child is looking to take control of their wetting, but maybe you aren't quite ready to take the plunge and get an alarm, this book provides the first steps to dryness. --Bedwetting Store Max Archer Kid Detective: The Case of the Wet Bed is a fantastic kids' self help manual to deal with the problem of bedwetting. Max the detective is a former bedwetter himself, so he understands what his clients are going through. In careful steps and clear, easy- to- follow instructions, Max helps an 8-year old boy named Billy Parker to learn to stay dry at night while he is sleeping. Fun illustrations and positive messages like going on Poop Patrol, joining the Stream Team, positive self-programming affirmations all help the program take hold effectively. For the last, the child repeats to himself, 'If I need to go at night my bladder will hold all of my pee till morning. But if I can't hold all of my pee I will wake myself up and go to the bathroom (p. 35).' At the end of the book are extra resources like How to Become a Super Dooper Pooper, a Word Search, and Make Your Own Badges, plus Q & A About Bedwetting (Just For Parents). 'The Case of the Wet Bed' is a great tool to assist kids who want to learn to stay dry sooner rather than later. --Midwest Book Review
