Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathie M. Josephs
Have you ever wondered what goes on in a pet store at night? Well, in this particular pet shop the animals read together, talk, and just have fun. Fortunately they read a lot of mysteries because they are going to need good sleuthing skills. Customers kept telling the owner that his signs were all mixed up so he decided to hire someone who can help him. He put a big help wanted sign in the window. When the animals learn what was going on, they decided to help out by making new signs and putting them by the right cage. They do a great job, but one night a vandal changes the way the signs read. Snake was turned into Milk Shake and Ferrets turn into Kerrets. What confusion occurred! The want-to-be detectives band together to figure out what is going on and how they can solve the mystery. The illustrations are absolutely adorable! This would be a great book to introduce the genre of mysteries to a child. The author includes two pages with information about each animal. I never knew that ferrets can spray a terrible smell when they are frightened or afraid. I thought skunks were the only ones to do that. The glossary at the end is very clever and is done with both facts and humor. I never chuckled reading a glossary before. This is a fantastic book for both boys and girls, and it is one book that will be read over and over again. Reviewer: Kathie M. Josephs
