Great beginner's mystery book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Richard Scarry's The Great Pie Robbery and Other Mysteries (Hardcover)
This book was a surprise for my 5 year old to get an introduction into the world of mystery. It is obviously not meant for older children who would like to read more intriguing mysteries. But it was great for my son, who has never read a mystery book before. The great steamboat robbery is my son's favourite, where Mrs. Pig's pearls get stolen. Sam cat and Dudley pig are our fabulous detectives, who can solve any mystery in no time. It gets the little minds thinking, and trying to pick up clues themselves. Richard scarry books have always been a presonal favourite of mine. I came across them only now, after I had children. I value them, because they are so good for introducing new concepts to little minds.
