The Mystery of Mr. Nice (Chet Gecko Mysteries)

by

The Mystery of Mr. Nice (Chet Gecko Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most folks know him as the best lizard detective at Emerson Hicky Elementary, but it's not all knuckles and know-how with Chet Gecko. He's also got his artistic side.

If it wasn't for his art, he might never have been sent to Principal Zero's office, where he stumbled onto the mystery of Mr. Nice. Because whatever you can say about Principal Zero, one thing is certain: He is not nice. Until now.

Chet knows something is wrong with this picture, and he's just the gecko to solve this mystery. After all, who do you think put the art in smart aleck?

Synopsis:

Fourth-grade detective Chet Gecko mixes with a tough hamster ex-con named Guido, a brass-knuckle-wielding bat called Ms. Darkwing, and the ringleader, a fat-cat fake principal who aims to take over Emerson Hicky Elementary and turn it into a vocational school for criminals. Illustrations.
