Alex Parakeet is a boy detective along with his friend Yasmeen. The two of them have sworn not to be in involved in any more mysteries. However when the most classic case yet emerges from the dust of Mrs. Banner whom is flying through her career of Lawn Care inventing.

Alex doesn't even want to be questioned or asked to investigate anything at all. Yasmeen didn't really want to either. He also wants his mom to figure out the case on her own.

The obstacles causing Alex and Yasmeen to get involved a
We are all enjoying the Chicakdee Court mysteries. They're funny and interesting and mysterious enough to keep us all guessing. In this one, kid sleuths Alex and Yasmeen grapple with the environmental impacts of fertilizer, the cultural impacts of professional sports (even at the youth level), and the lengths parents will go to for their kids - all while tracking down whoever kidnapped Alex's baseball coach. It was a home run.

A sports mystery and also not the first in the series. (I must start vetting my books better.) Alex must investigate when his coach disappears right before the big game.
Great light mystery for younger kids. Third book in this mystery series, so I'll have to read the first 2. This one takes place around 4th of July. Alex and Yasmeen are best friends and happen to be kid detectives. In this book, Alex's baseball coach goes missing right before the big game. He is found 3 days later confused in a porta potty. He doesn't know what happened to him. Alex and Yasmeen have some suspects, even if the suspects are really close adult friends. His disappeance has some ties ...more
Third in the Chickadee Court mystery. Alex and best friend Yasmeen are determined to stop sleuthing but are dragged into another mystery when his baseball coach goes missing on Memorial Day. Fun and decent mystery with some references to the environment, in this case, the Chesapeake watershed.

Mystery...this is what my students love about this book. They love trying to use the clues in the story to figure out how to solve the mystery. In this story, Alex's baseball coach disappear on Memorial Day and no one can figure out where he is. Alex is trying to figure out the mystery.
