What do you mean they don't give trophies for playing video games?

It's only fair, isn't it? Clueless McGee has mastered his Ninja Warz video game and he'd like a trophy. It seems like a lot of extra work to have to win the science fair to get one. . . . Yet that trophy is REALLY nice. And Clueless does have an idea for a magnetic pickle that seems like an obvious winner. So okay, he's in. Until someone steals the trophy--and then he's on the case! Clueless will have to call on his finest ninja skills --not to mention some luck and a lot of help from people more competent than he is--in order to solve the mystery. . . .
Jeff Mack continues to hit every note just right in this hilarious series that young middle-graders will be reading, rereading, and exchanging with their friends until (and even after) the next installment lands on the shelves. With comic-style art throughout, this book is perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, Dork Diaries and for any kid who likes mysteries, likes to laugh, and is a video game master!
