The Hamster of the Baskerville

Written by Bruce Hale

Do you like mystery books? This story is for you. Chet Gecko does not believe in the supernatural. His idea of voodoo is a bowl of his mom's cockroach-ripple ice cream. But when a teacher reports seeing a monster by the light of the full moon, Chet and Natalie take the case. Read and find out if they will solve the mystery.

I like this book because I love mystery books. I get excited to know the clues and when the mystery is being solved. I got interested in this book because I have read " The Hounds of the Baskervilles." My favorite parts are the pages with illustrations. The drawings confirm how my characters look like in my imagination.

I recommend this book to all ages. It is very funny. The author uses humorous jokes. It is a "mystery-comedy." You will surely read more of this series after reading this book.
