For Grades 2–4 and for those who like Geronimo Stilton, the Chicken Nugget series, and the Humphrey series!

Children will love Sasspants, a guinea pig who reads in her pet-shop cage using a thimble recycled as a reading lamp. She is the only animal properly identified because she's made her own sign using tiles. When the "G" at the end of "PIG" falls off, Hamisher the hamster mistakes Sasspants for a private investigator ("PI"), and enlists her help to find who's stealing Mr. Venezi's sandwiches. So begins this humorous mystery. Children who are just beginning to read graphic novels independently will enjoy solving the case with Sasspants. The full-color cartoons enhance the comic appeal. Two funny informational pages about the pet store denizens follow the story.

This series has been around for a while but this has become my favorite series in our JGN collection (apart from Asterix obviously but I've been reading those for 27 years). Starring Sasspants the Guinea Pig as a reluctant detective this book is chock-full of visual humor, puns and general ridiculousness. The Goldfish alone should have you chuckling.
