Detective Nosegoode and the Museum Robbery written by Marian Orlon, Illustrated by Jerzy Flisak is the third in a series of mysteries starring Detective Ambrosius Nosegoode and his little dog, Cody translated into English by Erika Marciniak.
This book is actually three stories in one. First is the story of the "Museum Robbery" where we meet some very quirky robbers. The antics of this story is laugh out loud fun!
The second story is about a "Game of Chess" and a robbery at the Ashworth Chess Club. It was full of not so easy to decipher clues that might stump anyone, that is except to say he wonderful Detective Nosegoode.
The third story in the book was "The Sad End of the Elusive Hand" This interestingly enough is the only mystery that Detective Nosegoode at first gets wrong and then gets right. I believe it has a good message for children not to jump to conclusions, which is what the good Detective did.
I think that middle-grade children, especially the younger age in the spectrum will enjoy this book as much as this child-at-heart reader.
