Each case file offers clear explanations, helpful diagrams, and interesting facts about these and other familiar elements in both houses and apartments. Meanwhile, fascinating sidebars offer surprising examples of household workings throughout history and around the world. A final section offers a glimpse of how our homes may function in the future.

Casey soon discovers the only thing more interesting than a mystery is discovering the facts. So, too, will readers be intrigued by Trudee Romanek's funny and informative look into the not-so-secret world behind the walls. Meanwhile, Stephen MacEachern's vibrant cartoon illustrations and clear diagrams will keep even the most hardboiled detective laughing and well informed.

I thought this book would 'take you through' the workings of a house in a more engaging way. It has a short 'detective' setup for each section then goes on to explain the answer in long text form. This is fine for an interested 10 year old but not so engaging for a kid to just pick up and read. I thought it would do a better job of pulling out clues pertinent to the mystery at hand but it just explains the system.

It does explain things in terms a child can understand but I thought it would be a little more engaging.

I bought this book for my nephew for Christmas. When he first opened it, he had the "oh great, a book for Christmas" look on his face. But, as soon as he flipped open the cover, he became entralled in the diagrams of all the inner workings of the house -- plumbing, electricity, etc. I knew he was interested in how things work, so I was happy that this book satisfied his curiosity. We actually had to make him put it away to open the rest of his presents :)
