I read the book Jigsaw Jones: The Case of Hermie the Missing Hamster. The book is about a boy named Wingnut and his hamster Hermie. In the book Hermie is missing and Wingnut can't find him. He goes to his friend Jigsaw Jones who is a detective for help.

My favorite part was when they found Hermie. He was in the closet. Mila, Wingnut's friend, was allergic to Hermie's fur. Mila sneezed and that's how they found Hermie!

My favorite characters were Wingnut and his friends Jigsaw and Mila. They were nice and good friends. I also liked Hermie because I love animals.

This book is like Nate the Great books. Nate and Jigsaw are both detectives. They both have friends that help them solve mysteries.

I recommend this book to 1st-6th graders because I think that they will think it's funny, sad, and happy! I think my family and friends would like this book too!
