Firstly I would like thank Ruchira for writing such a wonderful story that reminds of two yesteryear's detective serials1.Raja and Rancho -Shekar Suman starer and 2.The adventures of Tin -Tin. These two are detective based serials that had animals in it .In one serial there was a talking Monkey called 'Rancho' and in another serial there was dog called 'Snowy' .Both of them were loyal to their servants. These serial many of us might have seen and enjoyed.
This book also reminds me of Enid

The Mystery of the Missing Iguana is the first in the detective series by Ruchira Khanna. The story is about Alex and his pet Chimp Angelo, who solve the mystery of the missing Iguana. The first thing that caught my attention was the illustrations which are very cute and spot on. As a kid, I used to love such books. Reading one now brought back the sweet memories.

Ruchira has used a mixture of easy and difficult words. While it is easy for the kids to understand the easy ones, the difficult

Alex and Angelo are a smart team of detectives. Alex along with is pet monkey solve mysteries for their friends and family. The mystery of an Iguana going missing and story of how it is found is fun to read and follow.

This is the first book about their adventures and they do a great job. A day in school when all children bring their pets to school leads to one pet, an iguana going missing. How the two of them help find the pet is an amusing and fascinating story. The

As a parent, I'm always looking for new stories for my toddler. And when Ruchira informed me about her illustrated book, I was excited. We read the electronic version of the book to my son during his Christmas holidays and needless to say, he's totally in love with Angelo. My only challenge was that my little one kept confusing iguana with crocodile, but then that's his fault :)
The story is cheerful (inspite of the missing iguana) and the illustrations are spot on too.

My nephews loved this mystery and I didn't mind re-reading them the story. It is a sweet and wholesome book. It's colorful and looks beautiful on both my smart phone and Kindle.

Me & my kiddo finally got around to reading The Mystery of the Missing Iguana by Ruchira Khanna.The story is well written and simple for kids to grasp. Iguana is a not among the usual animals found in stories. So we got to know one more animal.Ruchira, you need to quickly churn out a Alex & Angelo series. Me & my kid wanted to read 2-3 more mystery cases of Alex & Angelo.

The Mystery of the Missing Iguana is an illustrated book for kids, parents can read out to the kids or older kids can read themselves. The story is about a little boy Alex and his pet Angelo, and how they solve mysterious happening in their neighborhood or school.

Writing stories for the age bracket of 2 – 8 years is tricky because one has to keep the story and language simple, at the same time it should be engaging, since their attention span is very short. Ruchira Khanna has done a commendable
