The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot is the second in the series and is an absolutely FANTASTIC read. It not only combines suspense, action and thrill, but also has some light hearted humour and wit. As with the rest of the series, this book too teaches a few things to the reader, unlike other popular teenage crime fiction i have read, such as Hardy Boys or Nncy Drew.
I would seriously recommend this book to any teenager interested in crime fiction. Its simple to follow and understand and uses everyday English, without the use of slang, colloquial jargon or abusive words, so that anyone across the world with a working knowledge of English can read it easily enough....
And i believe that anyone liking this book will SURELY go for other titles in the series !!!
This is the Three Investigators at their finest. The mental acumen of Jupiter Jones is put to the test, and once again his mental prowess proves up to the task. For an adult such as myself, some of the obvious clues are not picked up on in as timely a fashion as I would expect, but one must remember that even Jupiter Jones, genius that he is, is only a lad. This book is an unqualified success, eminently enjoyable to both young and old alike. I feel just as I felt twenty years ago upon first reading these books--anxious to read about the boys' next case.
The characters seem surprisingly modern for an old story and Jupiter seems to have been toned down a little since the first book. The guest characters are also memorable and well developed rather than the shallow stereotypes in many children's books.
A great story from a great series that surprises me slightly by its absence from today's bookshelves.
