this book was pretty funny and cleaver at the same time because he is trying to solve mysteries and its funny cause there is pictures every now and then and pet bear helps him. its a pretty easy book to read cause there isnt many words per page but i would tell people to read it cause it is a pretty funny book and easy to read also
