Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Chet Gecko loves a good mystery. Almost more than he loves his fee — stinkbug pie.

So when fellow fourth grader Shirley Chameleon asks him to find her missing brother, Billy, Chet expects the case to be as easy a pie. But Billy's disappearance is part of a larger plot, one that involves the Rat Sisters, a riddling junkyard dog, and a vicious Gila monster named Herman. If Chet doesn't solve the case fast, the entire school could be humiliated. Worst of all, Chet might not get his fee. And Chet's hungry....

Synopsis:

Some cases start rough, some cases start easy. This one starts with a missing first grader named Billy Chameleon. His sister, Shirley, promises Chet Gecko a big piece of stinkbug pie if he can find the little brat.

But Shirley has more cooties than clues, and Chet's investigation turns up so many riddles he could write a joke book. He and his partner, Natalie Attired, may have bitten off more than they can chew.

But they'd better chew fast: If they don't find the kid in time, it's going to be bye-bye, stinkbug pie.
