Read an Excerpt

"Help!" The voice was weak and choked. "Please, someone—help me! Someone—quick, before I—"

Hearing the cries, Jupiter Jones and one of his partners burst into the gloomy old house. There on the floor lay a haggard man, bound and loosely gagged.

What in the world is going on? The Three Investigators had been called in to help this man find his lost parrot—an unusual bird that quoted Shakespeare with a stutter. But a lot more seemed to be at stake than a missing pet!

This was the book that initiated a fanatical interest in The Three Investigators series for me and my sister. When I was 10 years old my mother brought this book home for me one day, no doubt because she knew I liked parrots and this story was about a parrot. I absolutely loved the book. Soon we had to have every book of the series. Although many childhood books seem awful when reread in adulthood, that was not the case for me in this series: even now the books come across as clever, charming, action-packed, passably realistic, and describe a wonderfully unique, more innocent world and era where clever youth can outwit adults. The verbal humor is great, like Pete's complaint "As straightforward as two pretzels wrestling," as is the Southern California ambience, like "he dove into the thickest part of the fog, where he could just make out a clump of eucalyptus trees." These books are ideal for kids growing up in Southern California. Trivial complaint: I wish the author knew how to capitalize scientific names correctly, like in "Vitis vinifera," because that error is annoyingly frequent everywhere, including here.
