Illustrated by: R. W. AlleyTheodore Jones a/k/a Jigsaw Jones likes to do jigsaw puzzles and solve mysteries. Almost everyone calls him Jigsaw Jones. Jigsaw owns a detective agency with the help of his partner Mila.
In this book Lucy Hiller, a girl in Jigsaw's class, gets to take her dad's rare coin to school (without actually asking). She lets a guy named Bigs Malone hold it, but then it disappears Bigs says that he cannot find it. Bigs is now the prime suspect. But, is he really the one who took the coin? If you like mysteries you would like this book because Jigsaw is a great detective. Read how Jigsaw and Mila ruin Bigs' snowman and find the rare coin.
