Most folks know him as the best lizard detective at Emerson Hicky Elementary, but it's not all knuckles and know-how with Chet Gecko. He's also got his artistic side.
If it wasn't for his art, he might never have been sent to Principal Zero's office, where he stumbled onto the mystery of Mr. Nice. Because whatever you can say about Principal Zero, one thing is certain: He is not nice. Until now.
Chet knows something is wrong with this picture, and he's just the gecko to solve this mystery. After all, who do you think put the art in smart aleck?

    Mystery of Mr.Nice by Bruce Hale. Chet Gecko wanted to do a mystery about his odd princible Mr.Zero. Mr.Zero was acting really mean but now hes nice!!??But Chet has to find out alot of things So he does those things .One thing that I liked about this book was when Chet and her friend or sidekick Natalie (shes a Mockingbird ) go through Mr.Zeros Stuff and find something really interesting. I recommend this book to people who like mysteries and animals.
