Children's LiteratureMs. Peck has the winning number. Now she and her whole class have won tickets to the circus. But there's a big problem. Ms. Peck can't find that piece of paper with the winning number and unless she finds it by one o'clock, the circus will have to pick another winner. Luckily there's a real detective right in the classroom. Never mind that he's the only detective; he's on the case and everyone is counting on him. Will Goofball Malone, Ace Detective, find the ticket in time? Or will some other class win the trip to the circus? An easy-to-follow mystery with lots of silly humor. From the "All Aboard Mystery Reader" series, this is a "Station Stop 3" chapter book with longer text, harder words, and a more complex story written for independent readers. Illustrated with colorful cartoon-like drawings. 2006, Grosset & Dunlap/Penguin Books, Ages 7 to 8.
