Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Anne Pechnyo
In Scotton's newest book following Splat the Cat, Splat finds himself in the middle of a mystery that needs to be solved. Splat loves the toy ducks his father makes in the shed and has even named every one. However, the ducks are disappearing at night and returning a day later with no beaks! Luckily, Secret Agent Splat and his trusty sidekick, Seymour the mouse are ready to solve the case. Who has been stealing the toy ducks and removing their beaks? And, more importantly, why? After setting an elaborate plan, Secret Agent Splat has clues to analyze and follow and finds himself incredibly close to the solution. In true Splat the Cat fashion, readers will be laughing the whole way through this latest tale. Scotton's textured and detailed illustrations bring Splat and his surroundings to life, down to the details of Splat's fuzzy fur coat and Seymour's kinked tail. This title can be used in home libraries and classrooms to emphasize courage, problem solving, and friendship. Reviewer: Anne Pechnyo

K-Gr 2—Slightly insecure, but totally lovable Splat the cat is back for another fun-filled adventure. This time he must use his investigative skills and his spy kit to solve the mystery of missing toy ducks. When he and his friend Seymour the mouse discover the culprit and his true motives, they all work together to create a happy ending. As with the rest of the series, the bright, bold, highly textured, expressive illustrations, filled with comical details, are the true appeal. While some of the humor—like Splat's names for his ducks—John, Paul, Ringo, and George—and his detective badge 003½—might be lost on some readers, others will certainly be amused, and fans of the previous five stories will enjoy helping Splat solve his first case.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
