It's an amazing book
It was interesting
This is a fun read. Good for young readers around Charlie's grade. They have recess and one teacher for all subjects so I am guessing second or third grade. As a mystery lover, I can't really call this a mystery; it's more like a sitcom. the situation is ridiculous and features an escaped lizard. Mayhem ensues. Very funny. An interesting look at an elementary school day with all sorts of fun and cliquey characters. I enjoyed this story. It was only 37 pages. the final six pages were blurbs for other Maggie M Larche books/series.
