Who Pushed Humpty Dumpty? David Levinthal

Binky is a detective.  He works in the Pinecone division downtown.  He's solving notorious nursery tale mysteries...

Schwartz & Wade sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  John Nickle illustrated it.  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

As soon as I started reading this, I could hear Joe Friday in my head.  Binky the frog is a lot like Joe.  For those of you too young to remember him, he was a detective on TV.  "Just the facts, ma'am."

Besides Humpty Dumpty, Goldilocks, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel and Jack and Beanstalk are all his cases.  They're silly, fun stories that your little detectives will love.  All the criminals must pay for their crimes, even Goldilocks.

It's suitable for ages 4-8 and would be great fun to read aloud with various voices.

Why not take a walk with Binky and see how he handles his cases?

Happy reading.
