"I won this from Goodreads for my kids. The book is best for 3rd grade readers, but my 10 and 13 yr old kids read it and this is what they thought. The book is really funny and the mystery is good since they didn't figure out the ending. They both liked the main character and the humor. The book is set in Singapore, so that's interesting as well."
"Good candidate for our Red Dot Book Awards - younger readers category. Not only is it set in Singapore, but it features a public library (one many of my students probably go to -- at Marine Parade). Also thinking that the Grade 3s do a unit on mysteries which this would be good for. Sequels as well. Like how there's a glossary at the back."
