Chet Gecko

Author Bruce Hale gives us an entire series of chapter book mysteries starring Chet Gecko, a fourth grade detective and a comedian with attitude. He's also a lizard! Chet loves two things in life --- solving mysteries and devouring dessert --- and he talks like an old-time detective:

The first book in the series, THE CHAMELEON WORE CHARTREUSE, introduces us to Chet and his mockingbird partner, Natalie Attired ("nattily attired" --- get it?). It sets a wacky tone --- ridiculous puns, groaner jokes and bug-filled menus, not to mention mysteries. Throughout the series, the silly synonyms fly faster than a spitwad storm in a substitute teacher's classroom.
