Grade 3-5Young T. C. Fly meets ``private insective'' Incognito Mosquito, who regales him with his implausible tales of his travels in his time machine. According to Incognito's boasts, his time machine has transported him to the times of Christopher Columbug, Benetick Arnold, Buffalo Bill Cootie, Robin Hoodlum, and ancient Fleagypt. In every case, Incognito solves a mystery and proves himself a hero. The plot however, is incidental to the relentless barrage of groanably bad puns. Absolutely no opportunity for using a pun, however corny, is allowed to slip by. By comparison, even old Bullwinkle cartoons seem like sophisticated humor. Despite their historical settings, there is no real educational value in Incognito's adventures. Still, they should be popular with the dyed-in-the-wool punlovers, young mystery lovers, and fans of Incognito's previous four adventures (all Random).Ruth Sadasivan, Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, Ohio
