9780152025151: The Mystery of Mr. Nice (A Chet Gecko Mystery)

Most folks know him as the best lizard detective at Emerson Hicky Elementary, but it's not all knuckles and know-how with Chet Gecko. He's also got his artistic side.
If it wasn't for his art, he might never have been sent to Principal Zero's office, where he stumbled onto the mystery of Mr. Nice. Because whatever you can say about Principal Zero, one thing is certain: He is not nice. Until now.
Chet knows something is wrong with this picture, and he's just the gecko to solve this mystery. After all, who do you think put the art in smart aleck?

Review:

"Those who haven't read a "Chet Gecko" mystery don't know what they're missing."

"Beginning readers will appreciate the offbeat, likeable cast and quirky comedy and may well look forward to Gecko's second case."

"The clever dialogue is filled with the kind of sarcastic similes that would have made Mickey Spillane proud.... It may resonate with young fans who want to go beyond Marjorie Sharmat's "Nate the Great" series."

"Humor is the outstanding element of this fast-paced mystery set in an elementary school. Told from Chet's point of view, the story is filled with corny jokes, clever wordplay, and amusing asides. The action keeps on moving and there is lots of suspense. The droll, black-and-white cartoon drawings add to the fun." -- School Library Journal 12/1/2000 "School Library Journal 12/1/2000"
