The Case of the Mummy Mystery

It all started with a dare. . . .

Only Joey Pignattano would agree to eat a worm in exchange for a dollar. Problem is, he doesn't trust Bobby Solofsky to hold up his end of the deal. So he's hired Jigsaw Jones and Mila Yeh to make sure Bobby keeps his word.

But when the worm goes missing and the primary suspect is a mummy—on Halloween of all days!—Jigsaw Jones is the only one who can solve the case!

Praise for Jigsaw Jones: The Case of the Mummy Mystery

Highly recommended, especially for devotees of series such as David A. Adler’s “Cam Jansen,” Ron Roy’s “A to Z Mysteries” and “Calendar Mysteries,” and, of course, Marjorie Weinman Sharmat’s “Nate the Great.” —School Library Journal

Will please Jigsaw Jones fans . . . with short sentences, bits of humor, and engaging illustrations, the latest early chapter book in Preller's long-running Jigsaw Jones Mystery series has plenty of appeal for young independent readers.” —Booklist
