    A beautiful story(;

    This book is a heartwarming tale of a platypus on a police squad, and his quest to find the frog who croaked. This book was an emotional roller coaster; i found my self laughing out loud, covering my mouth in surprise, and even wiping few tears along the way. It has been too long since i have read such a heart wrenchingly beautiful story. Reading this is the equivilent of walking knee deep in glowing stars. Dreamlike.

    I read this book out loud to my kids. We read a couple of chapters each night, and my oldest (6) always begged for more. She even has a PPS poster above her bed.

    In truth, I expected this book to be funny. Call me crazy, but when you stick a weird looking animal into a police uniform and arm him with a boomerang, I expect a few jokes along the way. The book wasn't funny—at least, not in a laugh out loud kind of way. I was disappointed with that at first, but that feeling soon ebbed away. It was a legitimate detective mystery for kids! It was like a Law and Order episode starring platypuses and pandas. It was a real police drama, complete with a missing professor, an illegal fish selling scandal, and some intense chase-down-the-bad-guy scenes. When we got to the last 50 pages or so, my kids wouldn't let me stop reading even though it was WAY past their bedtime. So we finished it off, then analyzed all the characters and discussed who did what and who the bad guy really was and what might happen in book 2.

    So as you can see, it's not a bad thing that the book wasn't funny. My kids loved it, I liked it, and we all plan on diving into the second book tomorrow.

    On a side note, the author also illustrated oodles of black and white pictures for the interior. His artwork is fantastic and gives the book a little something extra.
