Wow! This book is great. It's about a kid who solves a mummy mystery. At the beginning of the story Joey says, "If you give me a dollar, I'll eat one worm." Jigsaw said, "I don't know." But then he said, "All right." To find out what happens next read the book.

I thought the book was good. Yes, I liked it because I like mysteries and exciting books like this one. Yes, it's like another book I have read. It's similar to How To Eat Fried Worms because in How To Eat Fried Worms a kid makes a bet and they make a bet in the Jigsaw Jones book. It's also similar to How To Eat Fried Worms because in both books they both eat worms.

I recommend this book because I thought it was funny and exciting. I also recommend this book because I thought it was mysterious and really cool. I thought the characters were really cool. The setting was in a tree house and at school. The pictures were really good.
