Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3-A beginning chapter book that features a seven-year-old poet detective who rhymes his way through each problem (usually a miscommunication, never any foul play) to a solution. This gimmick, while clever, is also a flaw as it creates some forced dialogue. Marty's rhyming comments "I'll be brief. Are you the thief?" and "I've hit some dead ends, I hope we're still friends" make the reading tedious and a tad confusing at times. The characters are drawn broadly both by the author and illustrator. Black-and-white cartoon illustrations dance merrily through the pages adding flavor to the madcap escapades. Despite its limitations, this briskly paced, action-packed title will serve those readers making the leap from picture to chapter books.
