The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen

By M. T. Anderson
Rating: 3 stars
Reviewed by Noelle

Do you like action? Do you like mystery? Do you like strange happenings? And above all, do you like silly? In this second installment of M. T. Anderson's Thrilling Tales, Jasper, Katie and Lily all decide to take a vacation at the Moose Tongue Lodge and Resort. Jaspar and Katie are stars in their own series of books, and Katie is tired of solving mysteries and fighting off forces of evil. But no sooner do they arrive at the resort then the Hooper Quints, also of a book series, are kidnapped, and a priceless necklace is stolen while search parties head off to look for the Hoopers. Katie, Jasper and Lily all get into their own scrapes separately, but end up together by the end of the book to figure out who the culprits are. There are annoying characters, crazy characters, silly characters, ghostly appearances, bad jokes, and anything else you can think of, including the liberation of stuffed animal heads. Some readers may be confused by some of the book's references, but others will be highly amused and look forward to the next title, Jasper Dash and the Flame-Pits of Delaware.
