Reviews

Mercy is back in this fun third installment of merrymaking, buttered-toast eating, and crime solving.
--Kirkus Reviews

The shiny, retro pictures still amuse.
--Booklist

Another rollicking adventure...DiCamillo has creatively woven in the elements that a good easy reader should have: repetition, simple sentence structure, and controlled vocabulary.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

Charming and colorful.
--Dayton Daily News

This silly story makes my nearly 9-year-old son laugh out loud at every reading (yes, it's been requested multiple times).
--Denver Post
