EEK-EEK-EEK! Mrs. Brisbane is missing!

Humphrey has always investigated things, like why Speak-Up-Sayeh was so quiet and Tall-Paul and Small-Paul didn't get along, but this is a true mystery--Mrs. Brisbane is missing! She just didn't show up in Room 26 one morning and no one told Humphrey why. The class has a substitute teacher, called Mr. E., but he's no Mrs. Brisbane. Humphrey has just learned about Sherlock Holmes, so he vows to be just as SMART-SMART-SMART about collecting clues and following leads to solve the mystery of Mrs. Brisbane (and a few others along the way).

Nominated for twenty-four state awards and the winner of seven, the Humphrey series is a hit across the country.

    When Mrs. Brisbane becomes missing, Humphrey must find her and solve the case. After many attempts, Humphrey finally finds out the truth, and also a surprise. I would recommend this for ages 9+ Really good book and nice for relaxation but I think I’m too old for this XD lol

                    I think it was a book that made you want to read more of. You could read it time over time and still love it. It was a real mystery.
