This is a good early reader, and we liked the cartoon illustrations by [a:Tedd Arnold|11446|Tedd Arnold|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1206424686p2/11446.jpg], just as we are big fans of his Fly Guy series. This could fall into the Fractured Fairy Tales category as it's a spoof on many of our favorite Nursery Rhymes characters. ( )

This book portrays little boy blue as a detective keeping tabs on all the big names in Nursery Rhymes in a comic book framed style. When Miss Muffet goes missing, Detective Blue is on the case! The reader is taken through a series of questions and answers between Blue and other classic Nursery Rhyme characters as he tries to recover Miss Muffet. The central issue this book addresses are making connections, such as those required to solve a mystery and being true to ones self. This book would be appropriate for 1-3 grade.
