Jon Cryer's second turn as Chet Gecko, the hard-boiled fourth-grade detective, is a hilarious and appealing performance for all ages. He easily delivers Chet into some dangerous situations: Students in his school are being turned into zombies, and food is disappearing from the cafeteria. Humor is found in a wide arc--from the punny and snide jokes used among Chet's friends to literary references that take a narrator of Cryer's ability to deliver. Cryer also depicts the adult characters, as well as Chet's various animal "classmates," as interesting and fun individuals. These are two great stories for the whole family. E.J.F.
