The mudshark Detective Agency is on the case. At least, it is until the Psychic Parrot takes up residence in the school library.

The word in school is that the parrot can out- think Mudshark. And right now, the school needs someone who’s good at solving problems. There’s an escaped gerbil running the halls’ a near-nuclear emergency in the faculty restroom, and an unexplained phenomenon involving disappearing erasers. Once Mudshark solves the mystery of the erasers, he plans to investigate the Psychic Parrot….

Here is another winning tale from Gary Paulsen, about whom Booklist writes in a starred review, “When it comes to telling funny stories about boys, no one surpasses Paulsen.” In Mudshark, Paulsen introduces listeners to a resourceful boy who will have kids everywhere thinking, and laughing.

Excellent for young listeners

I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Mudshark isn't only cool, he is a genius with unbelievable capabilities and three small sisters that keep him on his toes. But when a parrot challenges his intellect and his coolness, memory and genius is under threat, he must turn detective to keep his status. This situation leads to an interesting and thoroughly enjoyable adventure. I hope this is not the last that we've heard from Mudshark. Tasso Feldman's narration is excellent. However be warned, if you are too old to listen to this book, you might be misled by thinking it is not so cool as I say.
