Buenos Aires' Chief of Police, Coco Carlomagno, is sure his office high in the Obelisco is haunted.
Every day at the same time he sees a floating pineapple and every day he hears a terrible noise.
What could it mean? Who could it be? There's only one guinea pig Coco can turn to to help him in his hour of need: his logic-loving cousin Alberta.
Can Alberta help him unravel the mysteries of the perplexing pineapple?'This is a great little chapter book, and I can see it being wafted under the noses of reluctant readers.
Why? The Perplexing Pineapple has charm, wit and a number of intriguing activities tucked inside.
This is going to be just right for those who are more 'hands on' learners .
With helpful clues, (which are given great explanations at the back), a great glossary and rollicking storyline The Perplexing Pineapple works on many levels.' [mybookcorner.com]
