Hermelin the Detective Mouse
Hermelin is a mouse. He can type and read. He’s named after cheese. He lives on Offley Street. People on Offley Street have problems. They leave notes on the notice board. Hermelin leaves notes telling the people where missing stuff is. (My favorite case is the bracelet found on the statue’s head.) Baby McMumbo goes in the trash, and the garbage gobbler is coming. Hermelin throws a paper airplane into Mr. McMumbo’s cereal. The paper airplane is a note. The people send Hermelin an invitation for a Thank You Party. When he shows up, the people scream, “Mouse!” Hermelin doesn’t know what that means. He looks it up in a book. He finds out he’s a pest. (The pests in the book are cute – except for the tick. The pests don’t bother me. If you don’t bother ants, they don’t bother you. The ticks are just doing their thing. They need blood.) Hermelin decides to leave. Does he go? Read the book to find out. I was hoping this book would go on longer. It was disappointing. I didn’t like how short it was. I won’t read it again. You can solve the mysteries looking at the pictures. There are seven mysteries.
