The mystery of the Missing Iguana by Ruchira Khanna is a cute little story of Alex and Angelo. Alex is a little boy who has a pet chimpanzee, Angelo and they consider themselves young detectives and help their neighbours. Alex wants to buy a mountain bike and is collecting money for the same and one way he feels is charging the clients 25 cents for every solved case.
One day, the children have to bring their pets to school, a friend’s pet iguana goes missing, and Alex and Angelo are on the job.
I loved the illustrations in the book and the story is very sweet. Though the author has mentioned that it is for 3 to 8 year olds, I would recommend it for all.
