HIS FRIENDS THINK

HE'S A BOBBLE-HEAD GHOST,

BUT HE'S REALLY JUST

JAKE THE DETECTIVE

 

            It's a BIG MYSTERY when things begin to disappear from Jake's classroom.  How can nine-year-old Jake catch the thief?  His mystery-reading cousin has ideas, but Jake has questions.  Does going undercover mean putting a bedspread over your head?  Is putting a tail on someone like Pin the Tail on the Donkey?  If you catch a thief red-handed, will he have red hands?

            Jake's good at following directions.  In fact, he does exactly what he is told, which leads to a lot of mix-ups, a whole lot of mistakes, and a hilarious mixture of merriment.  Add in Jake's bad hair, his short attention span, and his bossy classmate, and you're in for some laugh-out-loud fun.
