Whitman Better Little Book #1434, 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.
