Review: Oh my goodness this book is such a fun read! It’s great for younger kids and it’s so clever with the little mysteries! Definitely a great starter read if your little one is inquisitive and intuitive. The book is very graphic heavy, which is great for beginning chapter readers and reluctant ones too. This book is also hilarious and it has a great conclusion to it as well.
Verdict: Definitely a must read for younger mystery lovers!
