“Casual and comic, Simont’s drawings are . . . lively, adding vitality to the brisk first-person account of yet another deductive triumph. . . . Satisfying, nicely structured and written, this can also be used for reading aloud to younger children.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books




From the Trade Paperback edition.
