A positively perfect new picture book! It playfully updates the classic story. The plot twist will please preschoolers! A fun opportunity to practice “p” words and expand vocabulary.

Need to pair this with another good book? Try Dooby Dooby Moo by Doreen Cronin.
Devoted young mystery readers should seek out other authors and novels, including:
Richard Scrimger's "From Charlie's Point of View" and
Brian Doyle's "Angel Square"
Young mystery readers will also enjoy Graeme Base's illustrated books: "The Eleventh Hour" and "Enigma"
