Book Details

Broken into three short stories of poetry and petty crime, this charming chapter book will have young readers in search of a rhyme in no time. Book 1 in the Marty Frye series!

Marty Frye is not your ordinary sleuth. Marty Frye is a poet detective—he makes up rhymes as he solves small crimes. When his friend Emma's diary is missing, Marty is on the case. When Katie's flour is nowhere to be found, Marty tracks it down. And when the brand-new Action Chuck figures mysteriously vanish from the toy store, Marty unravels the mystery. Will there ever be a case too hard for Marty to solve? Or a word too impossible to rhyme?

A poet detective saves the day in this first book in the illustrated Marty Frye, Private Eye series.

Praise for Marty Frye, Private Eye:

"The cadence of Marty's rhyming dialogue is somewhat infectious, and has the added benefit of helping young readers tackle unfamiliar (but rhyming) words. . . . A fun and bouncy young kids' book, that's sure to appeal with its big kids' look." —Kirkus Reviews
