Book Description

When Briggs Barclay first meets his new neighbor Theodore Ranly, he can't imagine what they might have in common. Briggs’ main ambition in life is to dazzle the freshman football coach as soon as he enters high school. Theodore's got a killer arm when it comes to passing a ball, but the fact that he's confined to a wheelchair rules out any possibility of playing backyard tackle. They soon enter into a relationship that sends Briggs on the adventure of his life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Legwork by Roland Smith July 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book and although I hate to admit it, it is the first book I read on a Kindle. I am a school librarian and have been debating about getting and/or needing an electronic device to read books from. When this book by Roland Smith came out and was available only on the Nook or Kindle, I knew I had to read it so I downloaded the Kindle app for my phone (free) and purchased this book ASAP. I really enjoyed the story and the clever title. Like all of Roland Smith's books (and yes, I have read them all) this book was very entertaining. I especially liked Theodore who, even after life dealt him an unfair blow, made the best of his situation and succeeded in accomplishing his dream of becoming a detective. The story was fast paced and action packed and fans of Roland Smith's books will not be disappointed! I am anxiously awaiting Roland Smith's next book as are all of my students. Keep the great stories coming!

5.0 out of 5 stars Legword is AWESOME September 14, 2011
A Kid's Review
Format:Kindle Edition
FROM -THIS KID REVIEWS BOOKS -find me on the web!

Briggs never thought becoming friends with his new neighbor, Theodore, would send him to Montana to save a kidnapped 4-year old from her evil aunt. As it turns out, Theodore, who appears to be only a kid who happens to be confined to a wheelchair and has a room full of computers and electronic equipment, is also a partner in a detective agency. Theodore recruits Briggs to help him solve his latest case, finding the missing girl. Briggs finds himself on an amazing adventure. Briggs realizes sacrifices must be made -from having his head shaved to carrying around a 4-year old girl. Can Briggs complete his mission and get back home before his parents find out?

This is the first true e-book I have read. It only comes in e-book form. This book is funny and exciting. I couldn't put the book down and read it in 2 days (YAHOO for summer vacation!). The book would be good for younger advanced readers. Besides the Hardy Boys mysteries (the older ones, I'm not fond of the New Hardy Boys), I really haven't found many detective stories I like, but this one is great! I hope Mr. Smith writes a second book with Briggs and Theodore.
I give Legwork 5 out of 5 Stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, exciting Roland Smith adventure! August 9, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although Roland Smith wrote this story years ago, this was a great read on my Kindle. Roland Smith is a favorite author in my family, and the description of this book sounded different than his others. With our family trip to Yellowstone this year, it was a perfect match! When the main character was sent into Yellowstone National Park to find an abducted child, it was fun for my 11 year old son and I to visualize and know the locations of all of the action. The book was a short, easy read - and left me wanting many more cases for these kids to solve!

This is a typical Roland Smith book. Once you start, you can't put it down. I hope he is writing more about the YA Detective Agency.

Legwork, like all of Roland Smith's books, is well written and filled with adventure. Well researched, too! He has taken real events and real people and woven a thrilling story of scientific discovery and the exploration of untamed lands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classis April 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Roland Smith is one of our favorite authors. My oldest daughter and I enjoy his unexpected characters and look forward to new releases.

"Legwork" does not disappoint, I'd love to read more about Theodore and Briggs' adventures.

Cryptid Hunters series are mysteries with species believed to be extinct, also with pre-teen leading the charge into adventure.

Great reads!

I read it eagerly, and when the book was concluding, I didn't want it to end. The characters were completely believable, and the setting brought back fond memories of my trip to Yellowstone.
