From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6--Readers must follow specific directions and use map-reading skills to find the petnapper of Snookums, a rare iguana. Each step successfully solved will lead children to a particular page as the detective work continues. Solving the mystery requires the use of a street index, stadium-seating diagram, park and city map, shopping-mall directory, museum visitors' guide, telephone book, train schedule, travel itinerary, and subway map. The mystery unfolds in a picture-book format with bright, cartoon-style art. The city map and ransom note are separate items and kept in special pockets. The text has a breezy, humorous tone. It will take most children several hours (in several sittings) to solve the mystery. Mistakes in following the directions will usually lead to a dead end rather than sending readers off in the wrong direction. The detective's final report (a pull-out letter in its own pocket) gives the solutions for those who get stuck. Children who persevere will have practice using real-life skills and will likely feel a sense of pride in solving a clever, multifaceted puzzle. Note, however, that the loose pieces may make this a difficult title to circulate.
