It really is a wonderful book. It may be a bit advanced for today's kids, who have lived protected and sanitized lives and who have trouble following anything longer than a Facebook post. But it is a worthwhile journey for the kid who still appreciates the power of imagination and can get lost in a decent story.
Dickory Dock takes an apprenticeship with an eccentric artist by the name of Garson who teaches her to be observant. Garson also takes some cases from the police and as Inspector Noserag and Sergeant Kod, the two help solve these cases. Dickory gets more than she bargained for, though, when a couple of Garson's tenants turn out to be up to no good.
Humorous, engaging, and downright brilliant. Highly recommended.
This is an amazing book with mysteries within mysteries. With all the disguises and hidden identities, almost no one is who they first appear to be.
