No mystery is too complicated for Mariella, whether it's a fog that causes bad hair, a potentially haunted stuffed poodle at the museum, or a pasta-loving yeti in the woods. Tips for would-be detectives, case notes, and black-and-white doodles pepper these slender chapter books. Newly independent readers will enjoy the exploits of this private eye with pizzazz.
