"With off-the-wall plot turns and small mysteries scattered throughout, this is the perfect choice for mystery fans with a silly sense of humor, and the cliff-hanger ending promises more sleuthing on the horizon. Gosier's black-and-white spot illustrations add to the charming atmosphere. A sheer delight." -Booklist, starred review"Spratt's (the Nanny Piggins series) effortlessly funny narration will keep readers laughing from start to finish."-Publishers Weekly, starred review"Quirky, tongue-in-cheek... delightfully eccentric... A good choice for voracious readers who enjoy a blend of humor and mystery." -School Library Journal"Spratt begins this new series with a nifty, engaging protagonist who can keep readers laughing and help young geeks feel good about themselves...
