The brainchild of editor/anthologist/author/bookstore-owner Otto Penzler, the Mysterious Press has recently returned to life and now works with Open Road Media as an electronic book publisher. It was not the Tucker family series that I see described. Enter Detectives Wilcox, a policemouse and his boss, Captain Griswold. However, The Straw Ox matches the description. It was hardback, about 5"x7" with a turquoise, I think, cover. The rules are just like the standard memory game in which students take turns turning over cards and matching the detective words to the correct definition.

Marie Louise's heyday, illus by Jose Aruego & Ariane Dewey. It follows some of the same patterns as Alvin Fernald, Mayor for a Day: Both get Alvin and his friends in "social authority" jobs normally done by adults. A couple of the details in your post are different, but this story is so complex, that wouldn't be surprising. (For example, it's not the modern girl who has the foot scar, it's her ancestor, the little boy who'd been injured by an axe.) Great book! My copy was published by Archway Paperback/Pocket Books.

In this one, they face the problem of Jazz's new pet piglet: somebody appears to be poisoning the pig. I am looking for a crafts book I had in the mid-1960s.

From the flyleaf: "Sara was eight when the bombs began falling. As a result, it would have been virtually impossible for an author to establish a heroic protagonist in the image of one of these enforcers of the ruler’s dictates. I have a vague memory of a character (probably teen) who wanted to buy books, specifically Dickens. The one of the three I was most anxious about was the colony one, but I certainly do appreciate the help with these two. Fidel, in this book, is interested in Honey but it doesn't work out.

This book was a complete imaginary zoology. If you know (or have within your household, perhaps) a potential future reader of great crime stories, come get some ideas from this panel. His description of Ralphie, Buddy's younger brother, is an extremely accurate portrait of a child with Asperger's Syndrome or high functioning autism. (Those diagnoses were not well known in 1968, so Ralphie is called "mentally retarded.") A well-written slice of southern California urban life in 1968.

One of the pictures is of a girl Rosalind, Either Rosalind comes to life or Kenneth goes into a picture. Heading out on a road trip with her Grandparents, they attempt to trace her mother’s steps. There may have been a dragon involved somehow, but I'm not sure. But Roy didn’t give up, and in 1978 he sold his first children’s book. They are always surprised to see a dog hanging round the property, but since he is a friendly dog and seems to think that he lives there, they quickly warm up to him and adopt him.

The library has since discarded the book due to space constraints and no one there remembers the book. It concentrates on detective stories, defined as "mysterious situations, such as a murder, disappearance or theft, investigated and solved by detectives", and only occasionally discusses kinds of crime fiction without mystery.
