He likes lots of sports, cooking, walking, and playing the guitar, but is slowly realizing that his children are better than him at most of these things.

Yas Imamura (Illustrator)

[The Big Book of Mysteries] has something of interest for every reader... This is also an excellent title for reluctant readers who could carve out one or two “mysteries” in one sitting.
