Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
"The repetition, alliterative names, and simple clues all add up to a fun mystery for young readers."
Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Flatfoot Fox is the smartest detective in the world. At least his faithful Watson, Secretary Bird, believes this. After four other successful story adventures by Clifford, why shouldn't he? Some of the other local animals think differently, and set about to discredit the noble fox when Principal Porcupine brings him the problem of solving the disappearance of his entire schoolhouse. The solution is quite logical, of course, but beginning readers will find a few chuckles along the way in this nicely illustrated Sherlock Holmes for easy reading.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4Flatfoot Fox's latest outing is perhaps the funniest and best yet in the easy-reader series. Wacky Weasel, furious that Principal Porcupine would ridicule his claim to being a magician, promises to make the schoolhouse disappear. And it looks as though he has done just that. Flatfoot Fox agrees to find it, but an assortment of silly suspects and clues complicate matters. Of course, Flatfoot Fox solves the puzzle in the end, but along the way there are laughs aplenty. Secretary Bird, a clumsy, hilarious Watson, tags along as usual, and his exchanges with one Daffy Armadillo are particularly funny. The repetition, alliterative names, and simple clues all add up to a fun mystery for young readers. Lies's stippled and striped black-and-white illustrations capture all the lively humor, while including a few clues for observant children.Marilyn Taniguchi, Santa Monica Public Library, CA
