This book is about a young boy named Marty Frye who solves fun mysterys by using poetry. He solves two mystrys in this book, the first is a missing diry and the second is his sisters missing flour. I like how the book is easy and fun to read. The mysterys are clever and funny. Young children would enjoy this book. I think they could relate to Marty and the things he does at school and at home.
