Maia Shibutani & Alex Shibutani

Maia and Alex Shibutani are two-time Olympic Bronze Medalists, three-time World Medalists, Four Continents Champions, and two-time U.S. National Champions. At the 2018 Winter Olympics, they became the first ice dancers of Asian descent to win medals at the Olympics and are only the second sibling duo in the history of the sport to medal in Ice Dance.

Off the ice, Maia and Alex are authors, as well as active ambassadors and supporters for various organizations. Their first book, Kudo Kids: The Mystery of the Masked Medalist was released in September 2020. The second book of their series for young readers, Kudo Kids: The Mystery in Manhattan, is being released on May 4th, 2021.

As Athlete Ambassadors for the U.S. State Department, they have traveled to Japan, Korea, and Singapore, connecting with young people at cultural and goodwill events. The Shibutanis are known for using their platform on social media to bring new audiences to their sport, as well as sharing their interests in fashion, food, travel, and entertainment.


PRAISE FOR KUDO KIDS

What a fun ride throughout this book! It not only got me excited about the Olympics, but the OlympiFan game was full of twists and intrigue. A contemporary story that will connect with young readers everywhere.
― Kristi Yamaguchi, Olympic champion and New York Times best-selling author
It’s truly remarkable that sister and brother Maia and Alex Shibutani, who just happen to be very well known for their excellence in skating, have taken that same champion level approach to creating Kudo Kids. Everyone loves a great mystery, and Kudo Kids delivers a fun and exciting adventure aimed for young readers, that everyone can enjoy. I have a strong feeling this could be the beginning of something BIG!
― Scott Hamilton, Olympic Champion

The Kudo Kids are back in this fun filled, fast-paced middle-grade mystery from two-time Olympic bronze medalists Maia and Alex Shibutani, perfect for fans of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.

Andy and Mika are about to take a bite out of the Big Apple.

When the Kudo Kids travel to New York City for the first time, they're ready to hit the ground running and see the sights. But the siblings quickly realize that they're excited for very different reasons--Mika wants to take photos of iconic landmarks and visit a famous camera store, while Andy can't wait to try out an escape room that one of his friends told him about.

Both of their plans get shaken up when they learn that Aunt Kei is in desperate need of assistance as she prepares for an important fashion presentation. Not wanting to pass up an opportunity to explore, Andy and Mika enthusiastically volunteer to help run errands with their cousin, Jenny.

When a very special dress, the centerpiece of Aunt Kei's collection, goes missing, they find themselves on a chase around the city to find it in another unforgettable mystery that will leave readers guessing until the very end.

Full of tasty food, stylish characters, and plenty of adventure, this journey through New York City is for mystery lovers everywhere!
— Phillip Lim, creative director, co-founder of 3.1 Phillip Lim, and author of More Than Our Bellies
Kudo Kids: The Mystery in Manhattan is a compelling and entertaining read that makes you wonder if there is anything Maia and Alex can’t do. Fun and thoroughly enjoyable!

From two-time Olympic bronze medalists Maia and Alex Shibutani comes a fun-filled, fast-paced middle-grade mystery set at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Andy and Mika are going to Tokyo!

The Kudo Kids have never been to Japan before, so they can’t believe they get to attend the Summer Olympics there. The siblings plan to eat tons of delicious Japanese food, watch every event they can, and win a super-popular new game called OlympiFan.

Developed by a mysterious former medalist, OlympiFan brings players together from all over the world to search Tokyo for virtual medals and clues to the creator’s identity. Andy loves puzzles, and he’s determined to crack this one, especially since the winning team will get to be beta testers for the Masked Medalist’s future games!

Mika wants to find as many clues as she can, but she also has a secret goal of her own–one that could get her into big trouble. But when someone sabotages the game, the Kudo Kids have an even bigger mystery to solve than the Masked Medalist’s identity. If they want to capture the gold, Mika and Andy have to figure out who’s trying to stop their team before someone beats them to the grand prize!

A gold medal debut for the ShibSibs! This fun, fast-paced mystery with two fierce new detectives–the Kudo Kids–will keep young readers turning the pages until the twisty end!
— Elizabeth Eulberg, author of The Great Shelby Holmes series
Maia and Alex Shibutani have written a delightful game of a book full of surprises and heart. I loved experiencing Tokyo through the eyes of the Kudo kids, and I can’t wait to see where they travel next.
— Stephanie Garber, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Caraval series
