In their latest fast-paced adventure, Wild Willie and his fellow detectives, Lucy and Kyle, suspect that aliens have invaded their block! Mean, rotten Chuckie has stopped being a bully and is acting spacey and nice, and Kyle’s talking parrot is acting weird, too. Could extraterrestrials be controlling their minds? It’s a perfect case for Scarface Detectives, the trio’s recently formed investigation agency. Using surveillance and interrogation techniques and all their best detective skills, the young sleuths hatch a scheme to solve this new mystery. With prompting from a Magic Eight Ball and advice from the editors of their favorite detective magazine, the friends put their plan into effect, with hilarious results. Eventually, the young detectives must face an even scarier possibility than alien invasion--Chuckie has brain fryout for Lucy!
