It was okay. There was only one "Mystery" with the answer in the back - the rest of the book was snippits of "strange but true crimes" from around the world. Most of the snippits were very, very brief and only contained enough information about the crime to be humorous.

This is one of those great mmystery books like all of the clue ones where the reader has to guess what the answer to the mystery was. I loved reading these types of books growing up and sitting there trying to solve the mysteries.

I thought it was interesting how Melvin use sally toothbrush because it is nasty for someone to use the same toothbrush. This shows how close the two characters are. They have a very unique relationship.

I loved this book. It was so fun to read all the crazy crimes people come up with and actually do. It would be a bit difficult for young kids to understand but older ones would love it.
