This Critic?s Review:
Loeser’s The Case of the Pinched Strativarious has everything to catch the attention of a young detective–a locked room in reverse (they are inside it and the thief is outside), a damsel in distress, and pets. With logic and behavior as their tools, watch them catch a thief without ever leaving their aquarium. With amusing illustrations and amusing dialogue, this book is fun for readers and listeners alike. It makes for perfect play reading.
