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 Also some unpublished manuscripts which might escape someday?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.
