About the Book
In this riotous companion to Sleuth on Skates, the first book in the Sesame Seade Mystery Series, the whole gang—including Mr. Halitosis—is back as the irrepressable Sesame pits her wits against a devious gargoyle thief and whoever is behind a spate of strange scientific experimentation!
Where have all the gargoyles gone? Supersleuth Sesame Seade is on her second case the minute she learns that several of the monstrous stony sentinels on the Cambridge University rooftops have gone missing. But as she courageously tracks down clues—some of which lead her to dizzying heights—and starts piecing them together, she realizes that gargoyles gone AWOL isn’t the only mystery afoot in town. From peculiar footprints on the lawns and torrents of laboratory mice running wild to the strange lethargy of Peter Mortimer, Sesame’s normally ferocious cat, Cambridge’s number-one supersleuth suddenly has her hands full!

★★★THE REVIEWS ARE IN!★★★
“Irrepressible and loquacious as ever, Sesame is even more fun in her second mystery.”
“Horne’s charming black-and-white spot illustrations add a sense of whimsy. . . . Daring and indomitable, Sesame is a delightful heroine whose snarky asides and dialogue will leave readers in stitches. Mystery and humor fans are in luck.”
