Description
This ingenious, pentagonal puzzle book for readers 8 to 12 begins with a phone call from brilliant detective Roy Dodge, and soon Gus Twintig—an artist with an uncanny knack for detail—finds himself staring up at Ternky Towers, a 13-story building with 13 apartments, each of which has been burgled. Worst of all, the penthouse of Bevel Ternky himself has been plundered; the jewel-encrusted numbers of the priceless Emerald Khroniker clock have been pried right off its face. With the aid of Gus's meticulous watercolors of each floor, Dodge intends to figure out who stole the missing items and where they've been hidden. Each level, depicted in a super-detailed cutaway view, is in fact a thematic, fiendishly clever visual puzzle.

"Ready to get your mind blown? Then dig into this enthralling—and oddly shaped—book.... Twintig (a pseudonym for Scott Teplin, Mac Barnett, and Eli Horowitz) has an absurd, dry wit ('You should have seen my emotive facial expressions!' insists the mime). And those names! General Klobberduck. Jigsy Squonk. Sigfried Plumpjack. Rarely has a game of Clue been this fun."—Booklist (starred review)
