Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- When Nosy Otter is kidnapped, his mother turns to Flatfoot Fox, `` . . . the smartest detective in the whole world . . . ,'' to find him. As in Flatfoot Fox and the Case of the Missing Eye (Dutton, 1990), Clifford and Lies team up to bring the sleuthing skills of the dogged detective and his staunch (though not always astute) assistant, Secretary Bird, to delighted readers. Talking to a quirky collection of highly suspect suspects, gathering clues, following footprints, and enlisting the services of an air scout, Fox is lead to Motherly Mouse's house where he eventually finds the errant otter. The text, with its good humor and dry wit, is perfect for young mystery buffs searching for an easy chapter book. The black-and-white pen-and-ink illustrations--energetic, expressive, and full of droll detail--are sprinkled generously throughout. And for fans of Fox, the ending promises yet another case for the intrepid gumshoe. --Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
