Publisher Comments:

From the Newbery Award-winning author of THE WESTING GAME, more clever riddles and wordplay, clues to be found, and mysteries to be solved!

Wanted: Assistant to a painter (and a secret sleuth)

Dickory Dock has come to 12 Cobble Lane to take the job as painter's assistant to the artist Garson. The townhouse looks charming and quaint, but inside its redbrick walls lurk suspicious characters, multiple mysteries, and one very eccentric portrait artist. Clues abound; and suddenly Dickory finds herself assisting Garson not in art but in crime solving. Can Dickory untangle the web of mysteries within mysteries and discover the true secret hiding on Cobble Lane?

Synopsis:

From the Newbery Award-winning author of "The Westing Game" comes this story of Dickory Dodd, who comes to 12 Cobble Lane to take a job as a painter's assistant. However, she suddenly finds herself assisting the artist in crime solving. An ALA Notable Book. Reissue.
