Gr 2-3Jesse doesn't like to read and he especially doesn't like book reports. Then he finds he must finish three books by the end of the week or cause his whole class to miss out on a field trip. When he loses his first tooth, it is promptly stolen off his desk with only a note from the Tooth Gremlin as a clue. Maxine, a fellow student, attempts to help Jesse solve the case by persuading him to read some mysteries, and in that way he both uncovers the perpetrator and completes four books. It is amusing to see Jesse duped into reading and actually enjoying the books, and though some readers may figure out the mystery before Jesse does, this is still an inventive and delightful story. Maxine is an intelligent and wily character while Jesse is a non-reader with whom some young people will undoubtedly identify. The black-and-white cartoon sketches are appealing. Unfortunately, the puzzles, mazes, and other games included at the back encourage children to write in the book.Carrie A. Guarria, Lindenhurst Memorial Library, NY
