Joey Fly Private Eye in Big Hairy Drama

Big Hairy Drama Joey Fly, Private Eye, and his sidekick Sammy Stingtail are back solving another mystery in Bug City. This time they are hired by the tarantula Hairy Spyderson, owner of the Scarab Beetle Theatre. Hairy’s leading lady, Greta Divawing, is missing. No leading lady means no show and no show means no money. Hairy is desperate and says money is no object – he wants his lady back! Hairy hands Joey a downpayment for his detecting:

It was a hefty wad of bread, the crusty European kind. With this kind of dough, I could leave a longer trail of bread crumbs than Hansel and Gretel.” (page 35)

Joey and Sammy head to the place Greta was least seen – the theater – to talk to all of the cast members who might have seen her before she turned up missing. Somebody has to know something, and Joey will find out what it is…unless Sammy talks to much, destroys clues, falls in love with a suspect, or whacks him in the head with his stinger.

Funny plays on words (money = “bread” and “dough”) in the Joey Fly books are as entertaining as Joey’s attitude…and he’s got attitude. Don’t miss the first one either, Joey Fly Private Eye: Creepy Crawly Crime. Author: Aaron Reynolds; Illustrator: Neil Numberman
