Unless you think parrots are spooky. This was the first Three Investigators book that I had ever read; the first book that made me fall in love with the stories of the three friends who had started a business together. The Three Investigators. With their own business cards, their own logo (a question mark), and each with their own role in the investigations.

Notes: The Windward White Cover books (both Terror Castle and Stuttering Parrot) are quite scarce. They are certainly the most uncommon of the various . There was most likely only one print run for each and they must have been very small ones at that.

In this second book about the Three Investigators, Robert Arthur has exceeded the achievements of the first. Whereas The Secret of Terror Castle detailed the boys' attempt to prove their investigative powers, The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot relates the story of the boys' first real case.

Hot on the trail of seven talking parrots that have seemingly vanished into thin air, the Three Investigators are in more trouble than ever. Danger lurks at every turn as they search for the birds, each of whom can quote part of a coded message from a mysterious dead man.

...but dated somewhat.

The Mystery of the Stuttering Parrot is written pretty much the way juvenile fiction should be written. It's a book that can still be appreciated by adults even though aimed at a juvenile audience. The plot is realistic and logical given the premises of the genre. Dying men, of course, don't usually concoct convoluted puzzles as their last acts but this is a time honored plot device of detective fiction whether adult or juvenile. One can accept that three boys might be commissioned to find a missing parrot and that they would then get caught up in a search for a missing painting. There is no heavy reliance on luck or coincidence that one often finds in juvenile series like the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew. And although the actual town the boys live in is fictitious the larger setting, southern California, is real and familiar. The original edition used the familiar name of Alfred Hitchcock as a sales crutch, someone who would be quite familiar to boys of the '60s from TV's "Alfred Hitchcock Presents".

But can the book be appreciated by today's kids? I have my doubts in this age of cell phones, computers, and the internet. Kids today have no more idea who Alfred Hitchcock is than they do James Dean. (Hitchcock was dropped from later editions after his death and replaced by a fictional character.) But if you have a 10-12 year old who can stay away from the computer or TV for a few hours at a time you could do a lot worse than suggesting this book to read.

My husband read these books when he was young and had been talking about them for years. He finally pinned me down to ordering some. I can say that my 8 and 6 yr old LOVE listening to them as well as reading on own. They are great mystery stories and we will continue to order the rest of the set as they get through them. Thank you Amazon!! They are pricey but thanks to being able to buy used through amazon they are affordable. Who would have thought they could be worth so much! I guess you never know what treasures you may have stored away from way back when!

I read it 30 years ago when I was a teenager. A few weeks ago I got it for my 9 year old daughter and she had no interest in it, so I read it myself. It still was great and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend this book to any young adult from ages 10 to 16 who enjoys exciting mysteries.

I read the Three Investigators series as a young girl (in another language), and I find that I still enjoy these books even when I am a mother of 3 children now. I own approximately 20 books so far, and will continue to buy if the price is right. I find that [...] sell these used books for a lot less. You also get free shipping from them, and if you buy more than one books from the same warehouse, you get $.50 cents off for the second books onward.

In 1978, I was given a hardcopy edition of this very book for my birthday by my Aunt. What kind of relative gives a 9 year old kid a book for his birthday anyway??

Little did I know that this book would lead me to over forty others and the Greatest series/collection of books that I have ever read. I love the Three Investigators and I feel that this was the best book of the entire series.

The author takes great care in guiding you through the "mystery"/adventure and lets Jupiter Jones put it all together in the end.

I don't want to spoil the very ending, so I won't go into detail...just be assured that this book will delight a juvenile or adult.

Buy this now! I bought this for my pre-teenage daughter and son. Sure beats them wasting their time reading about witches or vampires!!

My daughter really enjoys this series. She wants to read them all.
This series is still good after all these years. There are twists you won't see coming.
