A Kid's Review on October 5, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Stefano Benvenuti and Gianni Rizzoni produced a top notch volume of information on the genre of detective fiction in THE WHODUNIT. It covers all the basics and adds a few unknowns without propondrance as to gender.
Many titles strive to be learned and end up being obtuse, this one is a fun read to visit with old favorites and find new ones to explored. Just turning the pages and reading the captions under the illustrations will keep you entertained for hours.
A keeper for any book shelf of a lover of mystery and detective fiction.
Nash Black, author of Indie finalists WRITING AS A SMALL BUSINESS and HAINTS.
