The Big Nap: A Chet Gecko Mystery (Chet Gecko Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Grammar school--it's all about eating and sleeping. Well, for Chet Gecko, anyway.

To Chet, nothing is more divine than a plate of Mrs. Bagoong's Mothloaf Surprise followed by a sweet bit of shut-eye on the playground. (Besides a few Pillbug Crunch bars and a monthlong holiday, that is.)

In these two hilarious mysteries from Chet's tattered casebook, he and his mockingbird partner, Natalie Attired, must catch a cafeteria thief, foil the sinister plans of a weaselly zombie master . . . and still take part in the Nations of the World PTA assembly. (Fourth-grade detectives get no respect.)

Synopsis:

Is it just Chet, or is everyone acting just a little bitstrange?

One by one, the students at Emerson Hicky Elementary are becoming mindless goody-goodies. No one talks in class, no one complains about homework--heck, the line to clean the chalkboard erasers is out the door Everyone is acting like . . . well, a zombie.

Chet loves a good nap--but this is one he's got to avoid at all costs. Can he save the school? Or will Chet and Natalie be the next in line at the chalkboard?
