Ever been stuffed into a locker…discovered fake barf on your desk…or had your lunch money stolen? At last, a remedy for those annoying, anonymous middle-school pranks. Help is but a desk away. All one need do is seek out the services of yours truly, Charlie Collier, Snoop for Hire.
I may only be twelve years old but I just happen to be a bona fide private investigator. In the classroom, I'm head and shoulders, and one belt notch, above the rest. My wit—more biting; my mind—more analytical; my rates—a dollar a day plus expenses; and my frame—slightly rounded.
Maybe you’ve heard of me. No? That’s hard to believe. Well, then you’re one of the few folks in Oak Grove, Illinois, who hasn’t. I’m practically a legend—at least at Roosevelt Middle School, that is. Everybody knows me there.
You see, I help folks—for a price that is. Take Josh Hartley, 6th grade class president, for instance. When Josh was falsely accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he sought out my services. And who do you suppose identified the real culprit who dumped live goldfish into the principal’s water cooler? Yep, that was me.
When Tracy Hudson, cheerleader captain, found herself on the hot seat, she called me too. And who do you think exposed the real perpetrator who teepeed the teachers’ lounge? Yep, me again.
If you have a burning problem, we can help. Our team (me and my partner, Henry Cunningham) won't rest until we solve your case. We can talk about all of this in my office...our garage. But we can only meet there when my parents aren't at home. They don't approve of my little business venture.
And if you like brain teasers, you'll love the Charlie Collier, Snoop for Hire series. It's filled with them. And if I say do myself, there's no one better at solving brain teasers than yours truly. You see, I was born with these amazing powers of deduction. For me, a word problem....is no problem.
