Marty Frye is not your ordinary private eye. Marty Frye is "the poet detective"--he solves petty crimes by turning rhymes.

Everyone's favorite rhyming detective is back on the case and ready to solve even more mysteries in this, the second title in a series intended for third or even some fourth grade readers. As he does in the first book, Marty Frye solves three different mysteries.

Marty Frye the rhyming detective is sleuthing once again in the sequel to Mary Frye Private Eye. These three new cases are bound to keep young readers glued to expressive goggle eyed Marty, as he continues to make his overly hasty predictions about who committed the crime. Picking subjects that kids care about most, such as candy, and dogs, these heavily cartoon like illustrated mysteries hit the spot for curious emerging readers, as nosy Marty Frye remains glued to his cases like a bloodhound, ...more

This one popped up when I searched for poodle books at my library. My 7 yr old likes mystery stories (Nancy Drew Clue Crew and Owl Diaries) and she liked these too. It's a easier chapter book with larger font and b/w illustrations on every page. The fact that Marty is a poet detective is kind of a fun way for some rhyming text too. Three mysteries were included and the charades are broken down by case, clues, suspects, A-ha! We've requested the next one from the library already.
