Yep. It is. So before you read The Case of the Missing Bronte, practice spelling your favourite words properly and sip a hot toddy with a chum. You won't regret it.
I'll write more once I've actually finished the book. For the moment, cheers!

A couple things bothered me about this book, but they didn't detract from the read and I would most definitely recommend it to anyone. First off, it was hard for me to get into it. Of course, I read it in its entirety while I was sick, and therefore nearly entirely oblivious to everything going on around me.
Secondly, I guessed whodunnit before it was announced. I consider this rather a success on my part. I mean, I guess all the time. This is just the first time I've been right. Yay me!
Final conclusion: Good book. My cat was jealous.

Berenson, Laurien. Underdog. New York: Kensington Books, 1996.
The Chameleon Wore Chartreuse (2000)
A hardboiled detective. A young boy - vanished. A mysterious ... chameleon? This book was terrific reading aloud to my niece and nephew (7 and 10 years, respectively). They absolutely loved it (I could tell because they wouldn't let me stop reading that afternoon until we finished it!) Even despite their enthusiasm, I think I liked it more than they did.
Hale takes a tongue-in-cheek look at crime fiction, setting a disappearance at Chet Gecko's elementary school. The Chameleon Wore Chartreuse introduces the major characters in his Chet Gecko series. Read 'em all!

Or not. It's a beautiful July morning, the sun is shining, and I am lazing on the couch eating a granola bar and talking about myself on the World Wide Web.
At any rate, welcome to my first post, which is hopefully not my last. Danke! Merci! Gracias! Thank you for listening.
