Raskin, Ellen -- The Tattooed Potato and Other Clues
The one published Raskin novel that I never read. (There are several
picture books that I'm leaving aside here. Also some unpublished
manuscripts which might escape someday? I haven't heard any recent
news. Anyhow.) It turns out I read this one as a kid after all. I
remember that the secret of art is not drawing every brick in the
brick wall. Dickory Dock (no jokes please) gets a job as assistant to
a mad artist with a Holmes obsession. There is no single formal
mystery, as there is in The Westing Game and Leon I Mean Noel, but
it's all about mysteries anyhow. Also the secret of art, and names.
Sorry -- the book is all about names. My mistake.
