Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 1^-2. Here's a holiday treat--an easy reader with enough meaty mystery to get kids hooked on reading. Aunt Eater (an anteater, natch) is trying to get her Christmas shopping done, but she has to keep stopping to solve mysteries in her neighborhood. Who's that creeping into her neighbor's house? And where has Mrs. Plum's hat and coat gone? Bright and funny illustrations are particularly nice. Fans of the series (this is the third Aunt Eater book) will welcome this holiday edition. Ilene Cooper --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In addition to the first book about Inspector Hopper, Doug Cushman is the creator of many other wonderful mysteries for children. These include Aunt Eater Loves a Mystery and three more books featuring the great anteater detective, as well as The Mystery of King Karfu, starring the amazing Seymour Sleuth. Mr. Cushman solves his own mysteries in northern California.

A 1995 book with decent illustrations and a likeable story.The book is quite predictable but enjoyable for a young reader. Aunt Eater's Christmas eve is filled with surprises.
