Read full description of the books:
Jigsaw Jones solves mysteries for the kids in the neighborhood for a dollar a day. At the start of the novel, he is sitting in his tree house office working on a jigsaw puzzle when he is interrupted by his neighbor, Wingnut (so called because his ears stick out). Wingnut has lost his pet hamster, Hermie, and is desperate for Jigsaw's help. With the help of his partner, Mila, Jigsaw begins an investigation by exploring the scene of the crime, conducting research, and interviewing experts and suspects.
This book made me laugh with it's clear allusions to hard-boiled detective novels of the 40's. It begins thus, "It was Sunday afternoon, 4:36 P.M. I was in my office on the dirty side of town. Oky, actually I was in my treehouse in the backyard." Jigsaw even has a girl Friday in the form of Mila who is his perfect partner with complimentary skills.
The book is also peppered with subtle education bonuses like Mila's song about short vowels and the teacher's guidance in Jigsaw's research. (Grades 2-5)
