Praise

Starred Review, Booklist, February 15, 2012:
“An instant classic, with a contemporary resonance and a tone of yesteryear, fairly begging to be read aloud.”

Starred Review, The Horn Book Magazine, January 1, 2012:
“Look not for logic; this is a romp.”

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, December 12, 2011:
“Energetic pacing, witty prose, and snappy dialogue coalesce in what is hopefully the first of many escapades for these unforgettable, bumbling would-be sleuths.”

Review, The Washington Post, May 2, 2012:
“National Book Award-winner Polly Horvath’s latest, a rabbity romp complete with
whimsical illustrations and a quirky cast of characters, has both the look and feel of a classic children’s book . . . Forget logic, the real fun here is in the detours, dead-ends and dangling clues that destroy all literary conventions.”

Review, The New York Times Book Review, May 13, 2012:
“Quite amusing….[her stories] give younger readers something they can readily grasp and enjoy”
