Big Bad Detective Agency by Bruce Hale

It's just not fair.  Wolfgang might steal a few (or a lot) of chickens here and there but he didn't mess up the three little (not anymore) pig's houses.  He didn't!  But no one believes him...

Scholastic Papers and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published January 27th.

This is a fun little tale that not only has a mystery but pokes fun at several traditional fairytales.  Did you know Cinderella got rid of the prince?  She still has a small castle, though, and her stepsisters are now doing all the work.

Wolfgang is given until sundown to find out who did the crime if he didn't.  He's off, but he has no suspects.  It gets even worse when the smallest pig (#4) wants to join him.  He's desperate, so he says, OK.  Together they ask everyone near what they were doing the night before.  Some are polite and have alibis.  Some are just rude.

This is a cute tale for young ones and I bet there will be more in this series.  I'd read them.
