The Malted Falcon: From the Tattered Casebook of Chet Gecko, Private Eye (Chet Gecko Mysteries)

The Malted Falcon: From the Tattered Casebook of Chet Gecko, Private Eye (Chet Gecko Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Freddie Nostrils is a prairie dog with a passion . . . for dessert. In fact, his sweet tooth rivals Chet Gecko's own. That's why when the winning ticket in the Malted Falcon contest goes missing, Freddie hires Chet and his mockingbird partner, Natalie Attired.

Just what is the Malted Falcon? Only the biggest, most chocolatiest, most gut-busting dessert ever imagined. Duh. But even if Chet finds the stolen ticket . . . will he be able to return it to its rightful owner?

Synopsis:

It's the dreamiest dessert ever imagined--Burp!

Synopsis:

Everybody, but everybody, is after the Malted Falcon

Synopsis:

In these two wisecracking, sidesplitting mysteries from Chet Gecko's tattered casebook, the fourth-grade detective and his punning mockingbird partner, Natalie Attired, keep the peace at Emerson Hicky Elementary. In the first, the two sleuths blow the lid off a cheating ring in Mr. Ratnose's classroom, and in the second, they track down the winning ticket for the biggest, chocolatiest, most gut-busting dessert ever, the Malted Falcon. Danger has never been so delicious!
