6th grade entry - The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot

6th graders were recently invited to write blog entries on books they've read. this is Christopher's. Thanks, Christopher!

The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot
Robert Arthur

Random House, 158 p.

In the book, The Three Investigators in The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot, Mr. Fentriss is trying to steal seven parrots. He wants to see if they will say their line that the parrots trainer taught them. Each line is a riddle from an old movie and each riddle leads to a secret treasure. The three investigators are in this chase as well. The investigators are trying to get the parrots back.

Jupiter Jones is one of the three investigators. He has a stocky build and a round face. He is not known to be very smart, but is very friendly. This investigator is an adventurous boy and often finds himself getting caught, or in trouble. Jupiter Jones really likes solving each case and loves answering mysterious questions.

What I like the best about The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot is that it never gets boring. The book always has something going on, and something mysterious or interesting is happening. I also love how the investigators are not adults, but teenagers. But the one thing I really liked about the book is that the book actually teaches you a lesson.

I would definitely recommend this book if you like mysteries, funny, or intense stories. Readers would like this book because it could take you on an adventure without leaving your seat.
