Welcome to Inspector Flytrap's Detective Agency, home to the world-renowned solver of BIG DEAL mysteries. Inspector Flytrap, a Venus flytrap, works tirelessly with his assistant Nina the Goat, a goat, on his community's unsolved cases. There's no case too big, but there are definitely cases too small for this endearingly self-important plant detective. On his first caper, Inspector Flytrap heads to the Art Museum's Secret Lab, to discover what important message lies in a mysterious glob on a recently discovered da Vinci flower painting. The ingenious solution: da Vinci was allergic to flowers, and the glob is, er, evidence of that ancient sneeze. This wacky, illustrated early-chapter-book series combines the masterful humour of Tom Angleberger with the critically acclaimed art of his wife, author-illustrator Cece Bell.
