All Chet might not get his fee And Chet's hungry •The first book in a zany new series that combines mystery with humor •A hip character based story and amusing illustrations in a fun format for middle grade readers Another old series in my library that will likely get weeded I read this aloud to 3rd grade classes and well all enjoyed it It reminded us a little of Timmy Failure which we read earlier in the year I enjoyed a lot of the references that 8 year olds will not get or possibly even their parents Casablanca for example I like books that allow me to perform different voices and characters Add in bad jokes and gross situations and it's a crowd pleaser I don't think the kids will rush to check out the rest of the series but it kept their attention

    I read this with my first grade reading buddy; it was her choice She's an advanced reader but most of the jokes went over her head which is to be expected She doesn't have a knowledge of film noir to contextualize it It's a perfectly competent spoof of the genre but it doesn't go beyond that in any way with out dated gender roles and cardboard character archetypes I don't think most older kids would know enough of the genre to get the jokes either and there's not enough there to make it worthwhile for adults to read

    It's been a loooooong add some zeros time since I have read this series but I vividly remember begging the librarians to buy the other books in the series at my libraryChet's wit is hilarious and his partnership with Natalie is entertaining Even if I didn't know all about the noir genre at the time I laughed a bunch It's also how I learned about dames I recommend this to any kid to introduce them to fun mysteries
