Overview

Itchy fleas have taken over the world, and readers are called on to help solve the mystery in this tongue-in-cheek caper starring a slightly bumbling canine spy and featuring several pullout clues.

It all starts with a headline in the Daily Dig: "Megafleas Attack! Can We Beat the Itch?" It¹s a r-r-rough time for dogkind, but luckily Secret Agent Barker — the only flea-free agent around — is hot on the trail, sniffing out clues. Who is behind this pesty crime? Is there a cure that will put the deep freeze on these nasty fleas? Readers are implored to help Agent Barker as he digs up evidence to solve the itchy mystery — with the help of foldout newspapers, maps to pore over, letters to open, a file full of pictures, and many more novelty surprises.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Fun packaging and details bring new titles to life. Clues in the form of newspapers, letters and guidebooks literally unfold in Operation Itchy by Jeanne Willis, illus. by Penny Dann. "The name's Barker-Secret Agent Barker," begins the canine hero of this caper. When two-inch megafleas attack the city, Barker must track down Mad Manx, a tailless cat bent on revenge. Engaging acrylics introduce an array of interactivities (including a pull-out strip of Polaroids) and a surprise twist ending. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Thievery, blackmail, chases, and a mountain monastery weave through this fast-paced mystery of dog domination. Hidden beneath fold-out flaps and origami-like envelopes are clues and maps that help secret agent Barker defeat his arch enemy, Madd Manx. Barker blows up the cats' stronghold and Manx's Cat Claw Crew, but can he find a cure for the megaflea attack? Ready to resign because he crushes the last remaining hairy fleawort plant—the most important ingredient for a flea collar—Barker thinks he has failed. Miraculously, a hairy fleawort seed survives, clinging to Barker's anti-flea coat, so he becomes a hero. But does Manx, the cat, have nine lives? Penny Dann's clever interactive illustrations beg to be opened and unfolded to give detective Barker the clues he needs. 2004, Candlewick Press, Ages 5 up.
