Three little girls are stuck inside on a rainy afternoon. They're bored and don't know what to do, so Papa sends them on a treasure hunt to keep them busy. But the clues he gives them are obscure, and first they'll need to figure them out before they can find the objects he wants. Sprinkled liberally throughout the text are colorful descriptive phrases, highlighted in a glossary at the end of the story. Old-time gems like "nooks and crannies," "the cat's meow," and "fiddlesticks" may leave kids scratching their heads in wonder. The illustrations are photos of uniquely crafted, life-size dolls made of masking tape and paint. These dolls were then placed in the author's home, surrounded by artifacts and souvenirs acquired on her travels. Far better than just watching TV on a boring rainy day, Snickeyfritz stimulates the reader's imagination and presents a team effort in solving Papa's puzzle. Kids will find this a fun and enjoyable read. Reviewer: Alice Berger, Bergers Book Reviews
