Mickey Sharp, a clever 14-year-old who sets up a detective agency in his backyard shed, is delighted when the beautiful Madeleine brings him a mystery: She believes her younger brother is being bullied. Nothing stops Mickey as he dons the school uniform of a neighboring school and attempts to crack the case--and win Madeleine. Narrator Steven Pacey deftly recreates schoolyard chaos and classroom antics as the witty Mickey takes on bullies, parents, and teachers and solves his case. This fun yarn doubles as a good lesson for kids who have problems in school. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
