9780689846274: The Principal's on the Roof: A Fletcher Mystery

WARNING: Reading May Be Hazardous To Your Health
The principal of Jill and Gwen's school promised to spend the morning on the roof if the kids read one thousand books during their reading marathon -- and they did! Now he's on the roof, and he's going to read an original science fiction story Gwen wrote.
But he could fall off the roof is he doesn't stop sneezing. Is it a coincidence that Gwen's story is about aliens who live on roofs and make humans sneeze? Fletcher knows that Gwen would never pull a dangerous practical joke just to make her story come try. But can he prove it before Gwen's in big trouble?

From AudioFile:

The mystery-solving duo of Fletcher the basset hound and Jasper the flea are back in business and once again come to the aid of their human friends, Jill and Gwen. In this installment of Levy's First Chapter Books, a school-wide literary event culminates in a celebratory reading of Gwen's story but only after the sleuths have averted calamity. William Dufris and Christine Marshall are distinctive storytellers. With childlike enthusiasm they embrace the improbabilities of aliens, sneezes, and a principal high atop the school. They provide distinct voices for each character, including the get-her-tongue-around-her-braces voice of Gwen and the goofy voice of Jasper.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-Here, basset hound Fletcher and his flea sidekick Jasper solve a new case. Fletcher's 10-year-old owner, Jill, and her friend Gwen are enthusiastic about the upcoming reading marathon. Their principal, Mr. Leonard, has promised to read aloud on the school's roof when students have read 1000 books, and he agrees to read Gwen's story, "The Mystery on the Roof." But when he starts sneezing uncontrollably and cannot read, Gwen is suspected of foul play. The animal detectives save the day when Fletcher correctly suspects that Alice, a cat jealous of her family's new baby, is on the roof and that the principal is allergic to felines. Fletcher's narration includes many humorous observations about human behavior. The comic line drawings and decorative typeface (indicating Alice "singing the blues") hit the right note. A solid selection.
