    Who Done It?

    Who Done It is a young adult level book, featuring MANY authors sharing a reason they couldn't have killed Herman Q. Mildew. Personally, I thought it was epic. What do you think?

    Who Done It is a collection of alibis from over 80 authors. They each add there reason why they couldn't have been the one to kill the worse editor in the world Herman Mildew . You get to hear some of the mean and awful things he did or said to them. They all have a reason for doing it and you just have to figure out which one actual did it.




    I liked most of the alibis the author came up with in this book. Each one has a unique and different reason for wanting to kill this man and a way they would do it. Most of the stories are around 3-5 pages for each author and you can see each ones style shine thru in the story telling. A few that stood out to me is the author who didn't need an alibi because she was to short to be a suspect but thunks they need to interview her as well. Another favorite of mine was how a twitter conversation causes one author to become a suspect. The cheese the editor loved to eat finds it's way into a lot of stories and they each give the cheese story a twist to make it theirs. There is tons of fantastic authors that contribute to this book and really to many stories to tell about each one. If you are looking for a light hearted Who Done It mystery by some fab authors give this a try. Some stories are wonderful and some of them fell flat all in all a good read.

    Who killed Mr. Milldew?

    No one likes Mr. Milldew, in fact, everyone pretty much would love nothing better than to snuff the life out of his greasy heart.

    But alas! The man is found dead. Now, everone's a suspect from Mary Rosewood to Lemony Snickett. OVER 80FAMOUS & NOT SO FAMOUS AUTHORS HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THIS HILLARIOUS "WHO DUNNIT?"

    What happens when the meanest, nastiest, smelliest editor invite

    What happens when the meanest, nastiest, smelliest editor invites all of his authors to a party at The Old Abandoned Pickle Factory? What happens when he threaten to reveal every one of their deepest, darkest secrets?

    Well, the editor turns up dead is what happens.

    And every author and illustrator is a suspect in his murder.

    Jon Scieszka conducts the investigation as each author provides a brief alibi for the time of Herman Q. Mildew's death in Who Done It? (2013).

    In addition to being a very entertaining premise, Who Done It? benefits a great cause. This "serial act of criminal literature" benefits 826nyc--a non-profit organization that supports kids' and teens' creative and expository writing.

    With over 80 contributors suspects, there are a whole lot of alibis to sift through here. I don't recommend reading them all at once as they do tend to blend together. (Though averaging two pages each one is a short read.) The level of continuity between entries is also impressive as authors carry details throughout the collection.

    There is a lot of fun to be had with this book whether you read it all at once or just peruse it for new and familiar authors.

    My favorite entry is Patrick Carman's, bar none. But with a variety of formats (David Levithan's is a poem. Sarah Mlynowski and Courtney Sheinmel wrote a screenplay. And Lev Grossman's is a riff on fantasy conventions) and a few choice illustrations, Who Done It? is guaranteed to have something for everyone.
