This book is fantastic! The mystery solving teenage boy is like a mini Monk minus the germaphobe problems and I LOVE IT!!!!

This book is about a boy who has an amazing gift to see things that are normally overlooked. When 3 paintings go missing he is the one who manages to find the small details that could help them solve the case! Then the FBI hire him as a consultant to solve more cases his life gets really interesting…

This book is clean, funny, engaging and perfect for boys young and old!!!! I mean a 6 year old could read this and be perfectly happy!!!!! There is action, some adventure, mysteries and art thieves! I loved this book.And there is no blood, guns, violence, just some kung-fu and mention of gangs or mobs.

Over all, this is a good book for young boys (and girls) to read. I totally suggest this book to any kid looking for a fun FBI book! Have a great Tuesday! -The Young Llama Reader.


  • A fun, interesting FBI book perfect for boys!
  • Clean and has the Golden Llama stamp of approval!


  • Uhh… mention of bad guys and mobs?

Get to know the only kid on the FBI Director’s speed dial and several international criminals’ most wanted lists all because of his Theory of All Small Things in this hilarious start to a brand-new middle grade mystery series.

So you’re only halfway through your homework and the Director of the FBI keeps texting you for help…What do you do? Save your grade? Or save the country?

If you’re Florian Bates, you figure out a way to do both.

Florian is twelve years old and has just moved to Washington. He’s learning his way around using TOAST, which stands for the Theory of All Small Things. It’s a technique he invented to solve life’s little mysteries such as: where to sit on the on the first day of school, or which Chinese restaurant has the best eggrolls.

But when he teaches it to his new friend Margaret, they uncover a mystery that isn’t little. In fact, it’s HUGE, and it involves the National Gallery, the FBI, and a notorious crime syndicate known as EEL.

Can Florian decipher the clues and finish his homework in time to help the FBI solve the case?
