The book takes place at Christmas time, and Toad's favorite Christmas carols are "Dig the Holes with Trowels, by Golly!" and "Good King Wences' Car Backed Out, on a Piece of Stephen." Later: This was probably set during the second World War and involved about 4 children, siblings I believe, who were sent to the country to stay with an elderly relative.

A garden romance featuring Miss Jaster and a dear little hedgehog named Hedgie. I have a memory from my childhood (1980s) of an older childrens/YA series of books about a boy who masquerades as a superhero. Although the back covers of the books stated "complete and unabridged", this wasn't necessarily the case -- in particular, I was peeved as a child that a sizeable chunk of "A Study In Scarlet" had been omitted from the Holmes volume.

The main character is a girl, with a friend who's a boy, and she reanimates a stuffed crow with magic, which can then talk. I think you will probably get alot of responses to this, and more precise ones, if my hunch is correct: Vicky Austin is the heroine and she appears in a series of books by Madeleine L'Engle. If you like one series, you're likely to try the other if you know that it exists. Now, I am a 3D Character Animator! The title character in Joe Meno's book, The Boy Detective Fails, is a deconstruction of what this trope might become when they enter adulthood.

Second reviewer: I did not like the book. It was laborious to read because the plot was so slow (in the beginning). I haven't read this book, but sold a copy on Ebay a few months ago, and realised after I sold it that I wish I had kept it :) It was a paperback, and like the person described, a mystery story in which text was on one side, and comic-like drawings on the other that had some sort of puzzle to go along with the book...

It was a very beautifully illustrated book with watercolor pictures, I think. There is a brief but vivid image about a bond that develops between Alvin and Pim (Chapter 18). I love how this book requires listeners to pay attention to details, thus exercising kids’ reading comprehension skills. In the book, Mickey Mouse had a magic ice cream maker/wishing box/magic box and he wished for ice cream, but he couldn't turn it off, and the ice cream filled the castle (?) or room.

Series by Sally Gardner and each book in the series so far has been better than the last one. He built all kinds of gadgets in his parents' basement and all over the house. My brother had this paperback when I was a child; it brings back a lot of memories.

Com): Lots of detail on about a dozen Christmas mysteries. But his father is a police chief, and his partner in crime-solving is a girl named Sally, who is not his sister.
