Format: Spiral-bound
Chet Gecko, not to be confused with GEICO, solves mysteries with wit and punditry, and cooks up great stories as well. This collection includes several recipes sure to please even the most reptilian tastes, and entice kids (esp. boys) into reading more of the series. Once you read Chet Gecko, you can never listen to Garrison Keillors Adventures of Guy Noir without laughing out loud and thinking of Chet transported out of his lovely lizard body and into Mr. Noir's world. If the Sweet Potato Queens turned into geckos and wrote a book for kids, this would be the result.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on July 9, 2006
Format: Spiral-bound
This is a great and funny book. Even the recipes are pretty funny. Not only that this book is funny but it is also good at teaching kids how to be a Private Eye (PI). Another great thing about this book is that three authors worked together on it, which makes it very interesting. The recipes are great as well. The funniest thing about this book is when the bird and Chet Gecko write what they are saying. This is one of the funniest books I have ever read.

Thanks for this good copy of the Chet Gecko Detective Handbook and Cookbook. My grandson is a great fan of the Chet Gecko stories and he doesn't have this handbook and cookbook. I look forward to giving it to him.
