Farewell, My Lunchbag: Danger may be Chet Gecko's business, but dessert is his delight. . . . Chet Gecko's hunger for mystery is matched only by his appetite for cockroach casserole, mosquito marshmallow surprise, and stinkbug pie. So when the cafeteria needs help nabbing a food thief, Chet digs into the case with a passion he usually reserves only for dessert. But this time Chet may have bitten off more than even he can chew. Someone has framed him, and now everyone at Emerson Hicky--even his trusted partner, Natalie Attired--thinks the food thief is none other than Chet!
 
The Big Nap: Grammar school—it's all about eating and sleeping. Well, for Chet Gecko, anyway. To Chet, nothing is more divine than a plate of Mrs. Bagoong's Mothloaf Surprise followed by a sweet bit of shut-eye on the playground. (Besides a few Pillbug Crunch bars and a month-long holiday, that is.) In this hilarious mystery from Chet's tattered casebook, he and his mockingbird partner, Natalie Attired, must catch a cafeteria thief, foil the sinister plans of a weaselly zombie master . . . and still take part in the Nations of the World PTA assembly. (Fourth-grade detectives get no respect.)
Bruce Hale has performed extensively on stage and on television and is a popular speaker, teacher, and storyteller for both children and adults. From picture books to novels and graphic novels, Bruce has written and/or illustrated over fifty books for kids. His popular series include the award-winning Chet Gecko Mysteries, among others. These days, Bruce lives in Santa Barbara with his wife, his sweet mutt, Riley, and his massive collection of hats.
