When the eccentric Blanche Porter reports that her beloved Mr. Cheeters has vanished, it isn't your standard missing persons case. As Nancy Drew soon discovers, Mr. Cheeters, is a pet chimp. Or is he? Based on a preliminary investigation and information obtained from Blanche's brother, Lawrence, the River Heights police dismiss the case as bogus – doubting that there ever was a Mr. Cheeters to begin with. But when Nancy Drew discovers there's a missing diamond necklace as well – she's on the case! Can Nancy, along with Bess and George, recover the great ape and the necklace, or has Blanche Porter made a monkey out of Nancy Drew? Ages 8 to 12.
About the Author
Stefan Petrucha, script
Stefan Petrucha's been writing comics and novels for - whoa! A really, really long time. A lot of his stuff tends to be pretty scary, like Topp's X-Files comic, or his graphic novel, Kolchak: The Devil in the Details (which was nominated for a Stoker award !), but then again he's also written over 150 Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck comics for Egmont Publishing in Denmark. He lives in Westchester County, NY with his two daughters, Maia and Margo (both of whom he hopes will be reading these Nancy Drew graphic novels), and his wife and fellow writer, Sarah.
