Whitman Better Little Book #1459, based on the famous newspaper strip featuring the character created by Earl Derr Biggers. Detective Inspector Charlie Chan works to solve a murder committed aboard the ship he is sailing on, with the victim's talking macaw offering a valuable clue. A Better Little Book is a small, compact book typically designed with a captioned illustration opposite each page of text. More robust than a comic book, and less than a novel. Appeals to a wide audience.
