Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-- Flatfoot Fox calls himself "the smartest detective in the whole world." He has a chance to prove his mettle by finding out who was mean enough to steal Fat Cat's beautiful blue glass eye at the cat's birthday party. Of course, Fox and his trusty sidekick, Secretary Bird, crack the case by questioning the party guests, paying attention to detail, and tricking the culprit into confessing. Newly independent readers will smile at the silliness and solve the mystery long before Flatfoot Fox does. But no matter, this is just the stuff for beginning mystery buffs, and Lies's entertaining black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings add to the fun. Watch for another, for the end ing sets the stage for Flatfoot Fox's next case. --Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA

Review

"Lies's expressive black-line drawings perfectly complement Clifford's dry wit, making this a clever and funny first chapter book." Booklist, ALA

Format: Hardcover
Flatfoot Fox and the Case of the Missing Eye is an intriguing mystery for children. It captures simple themes of mystery while captivating and entertaining the children in playful characters and dialogue. Being a high school student, I still enjoy reading this book, but obviously do not find as much pleasure in it as a child would. However, this book was my favorite as a child and I read it over and over again. Purchase this book. It is fascinating. (Also, can be used to help your child to read!)

Format: Paperback
Each book in the series are enjoyable and catalysts for discussions. There are other young children's detective books but this series is both something children enjoy and can assist in parenting. Deductive thinking, the value of listening, healthy skepticism, patience in thinking add to the colorful characters, stereotypes, and pleasing illustrations. In a classic progression detective is approached, accepts a case, has an assistant, solves the mystery, reveals how success was created and leaves you anticipating the next mystery.
