Description

Hold on to your fedoras, Gecko fans, a new detective has arrived at Emerson Hicky Elementary. His name's Bland. James Bland. And he immediately cracks a case that has baffled Chet and Natalie. Do our favorite PIs get jealous? You'd better believe it! When Bland suddenly goes missing, the blame falls squarely on everyone's favorite gecko. So Chet will have to rescue his tubby rival or face a stint behind bars--and we're not talking the jungle gym.
