Grade 3-8 During a television appearance on Late Flight with David Litterbug, Incognito Mosquito, Private Insective, relates five pun-filled cases for readers. I.M. presents each case, then readers are given a chance to solve the mystery before the solution is given. The third in a series Incognito Mosquito, Private Insective (1982) and Incognito Mosquito Flies Again (1985, both Random)these mysteries are well done, and the heavy dose of insect puns adds a level of sophistication not available in the the "Encyclopedia Brown" series by Sobol or Simon's "Einstein Anderson" (Viking) books. Although older readers may be put off by the cartoon-like illustrations, these books are most useful for sophisticated intermediate or slow junior high readers. A good choice where detective stories are popular.Kathryn M. Weisman, Willowbrook School Library Media Center, Glenview, Ill.
