good mystery, no violence, amusing throughout
9 December 1999 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Very enjoyable, a number of subtle visual jokes (note the turtle that Dean Stockwell has in one scene). Wish it was on videotape.

James Gleason goes on about how he knows how to handle kids because he has six, but it's clear he doesn't, and as a result Lynn Bari's kids solve the mystery where the police can't.

Book also good, even harder to find.
