"Hilarious and intriguingly perceptive." (The Times)
"Infectious ... any child with a sense of quick-fire humour is bound to warm to the bungling detective." (BBC)
"Horowitz has a knack for puns and humor, and he successfully combines it with a nonstop action mystery that has everything from hydraulically controlled buses to secret caverns. A readable and exciting adventure." (School Library Journal)
