A mouse detective solves mysteries
Published in another edition as "Inspector Stilton" this series follows a mouse detective through a mystery in a similar style to Graeme Base's "The Eleventh Hour". A world filled with animals in human clothes, doing everyday human things, populate different scenes with each double page having a puzzle to solve, as well as a seek and find, and a larger mystery running throughout (giving it more readability).
It's simple stuff but dynamically illustrated with rich detail in each scene.
Stilton and his young assistant, Nat are called on to solve a crime - the theft of 12 precious items from the city museum. At every place they visit, they must solve a puzzle - either problem-solving, questions of logic, or hunt-and-find - leaving the reader clues to guess the identity of the thief.
Another crime for the great Inspector Rockfort to solve! A Countess�s precious stones have been taken from her hotel room, and local police have concluded that one of the hotel�s other guests did the deed. So, Rockfort inspects the seaside resort, looking for jewelry among the cheerfully colorful carousels, greenhouses, and candy and shell shops chock-a-block with goods. But he can use some help, and that�s where kids come in. They have to go through the drawings, searching carefully for the Countess�s missing jewels in each one, and solving fun riddles. By the end, Rockfort and his team of puzzle-loving readers will have figured out whodunit and cracked a tough case.
