★★★★☆ A humorous mystery with a twist! (Staff Review)

By Laurie P, WPL Staff on Mon, 11 Jul 2016 18:41:45

When Mom finds her favourite teapot broken on the floor she wants to know who broke it! In this chaotic household there are a host of suspects including a baby, a big brother hanging from the ceiling fan, a big sister stuffing her face and even Dad sitting in his underwear reading the paper. Or was it the dog or the cat?? Mom is mad and wants to know how her beloved teapot got broken! Bill Slavin has written a cute story with a hint of a mystery for young children. The text is quite simple with a nice rhyme and rhythm. The art work is quirky, busy and filled with quite a lot of detail to keep youngsters captivated. Adults will enjoy reading the humorous newspaper headings and children will like being able to tell the story using only the pictures. While this is a relatively short picture book it was enjoyable and with the addition of the mystery and the twist at the end I think younger children will enjoy it as will the adults reading the book., Laurie P, Waterloo Public Library
