Most folks know him as the best lizard detective at Emerson Hicky Elementary, but it's not all knuckles and know-how with Chet Gecko. He's also got his artistic side.
If it wasn't for his art, he might never have been sent to Principal Zero's office, where he stumbled onto the mystery of Mr. Nice. Because whatever you can say about Principal Zero, one thing is certain: He is not nice. Until now.
Chet knows something is wrong with this picture, and he's just the gecko to solve this mystery. After all, who do you think put the art in smart aleck?

Mystery of Mr. Nice, by Bruce Hale, is about a kid named Chet Gecko who wants to find out why the mean Principal, Mr. Zero, became so nice. Chet tries his best to solve this mystery. He asks almost everybody he knows in Emerson Hicky Elementary if they know what¿s wrong with Mr. Zero. Until one day, he figures out it was really Mr. Zero after all not a fake. Chet Gecko is a student at Emerson Hicky Elementary School and loves to solve mysteries. Natalie is also a good mystery solver and Chet Gecko¿s mystery assistant. Mr. Ratnose is Chet Gecko¿s nice teacher, but if you get on his bad side, ooh I feel bad for you. The connection I have to the book is that I love to solve mysteries of my lost football cards. The theme of this story is to never go to Emerson Hicky Elementary with a PROBLEM because you¿ll always get caught. Read this book and you will sink right into the pages. I recommend this book for all those mystery lovers because there is a lot of mystery solving of why Mr. Zero was so nice.

Soemthing is wrong with Principal Zero.

I like this book because it is a mystery. I like mystery books because you can't put them down and they're really exciting. Chet Gecko, the detective, and his pal Natalie have noticed some really weird things at the school lately. They figured out that four people were trying to turn the school into a crime school. Knuckles[the fake principle], Ms. Darkwing, Mr. Squint and Guido were the suspects. Chet found the real principal locked up in a room with tape on his mouth and string holding him tight. Chet freed Mr. Zero and ran to the meeting at the school. When they got there, they figured out that the criminals were trying to trick everyone that they were going to change the school into a vocational school. Chet told everyone that they were going to change it into a crime school and everyone gasped. Mr. Zero, the principal, called the police while Chet was giving his speech. The police arrested the criminals and they were never seen again. If you like comedy mysteries with a lot of adventure you will love this book.
