Overview

This devilishly funny story about a family of Peeping Toms is custom-made for the debut of Delphine DurandÆs edgy, funky style of illustration that perfectly captures every hilarious detail. Peeking and prying busybodies, the Snoops know everything about everybody who lives on Keyhole Placeùthey see Miss Spankie (who lost her hankie) wiping her nose on her sleeve; Loco Louie painting Mr. CrampÆs cat; and even Slippery Sam slinking off through the bushes after stealing a kiss. But the riled residents find a way to turn the tables when they snoop on the Snoopsùand the reader can join them! By peeking into a keyhole-shaped concertina, children can catch the embarrassing antics of the Snoops at home. Refreshingly irreverent, Moss is not afraid to be a little naughtyùthe Snoops record everything from Mr. JamesÆ leopard-print underpants to an extensive map of what the dog did where. Both kids and adults will get a kick out of the rhythmic, bawdy text complemented by DurandÆs outrageously illustrated cast of characters.

The Snoops spend all their time spooping on the activities of the neighborhood until the end when the neighbors, and the reader, take their revenge.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Vandalism, romance, embarrassing mishaps--the Snoops don't miss a thing in their neighborhood. Dedicated voyeurism and a passion for their work have sharpened all their senses: "They don't miss Michael Harries wiping off his mother's kiss. Or the price tag on Tilly Toddler's new shoes"; "They even sniff out which dog did which poop where, and plot it on a graph." Readers get the scoop through the eyes of the Snoops, until the binoculars are turned on the last page, which offers a 3-D peek into number nine Keyhole Place. There readers can spy the Snoops themselves, picking their noses, practicing karaoke and snarfing chocolates while clad only in underwear. Moss's Jigsaw text creates a hushed, conspiratorial tone and creepily paranoid atmosphere. Spidery, crudely rendered hand-lettered text sets off the eccentric style of French artist Durand's cartoon illustrations, often framed by a keyhole, raised blinds or a binocular shape. Her thick, rubbery-limbed people, with eyeballs way atop their heads, are surrounded by toothy birds and bulb-nosed cats and dogs, with spindly legs sticking out of burly bodies. The distinctive tone and general bad behavior will capture the imaginations of some readers, but the vision of mean-spirited and duplicitous life in a small town is sometimes more nasty than funny. Ages 4-7. May
