Summary

Jigsaw Jones is a, puzzle fanatic second-grade detective who deals with all kinds of cases. He knows that mysteries are like jigsaw puzzles-you've got to look at all the pieces to solve the case.

Missing hamsters, lost coins, haunted houses...Jigsaw Jones has seen it all before. With his top secret detective journal, eye for detail, and ace partner Mila, Jigsaw is always ready to take on a new case.

Is a bear on the loose in Jigsaw's town, or is someone trying to scare Ms. Gleason's class silly?
