Herman Q, Mildew, an editor renowned for his lack of social skills (which is putting it very nicely!), a penchant for crushing dreams, poor hygiene, and love of stinky cheese is dead, and the police have requested alibis from the many writers and illustrators of young adult and children’s fiction that have reasons to wish him dead. These alibis range from a few paragraphs to several pages and reflect the creativity and ingenuity of their creators. As you may have deduced from the name of the deceased, this book should be read with one’s tongue firmly planted in one’s cheek. I found myself charmed and amused by the range of alibis presented and their formats—many are in a typical narrative form, but one is provided primarily in the form of tweets on Twitter, others as scripts, and at least one as a graphic novel. If you’re looking for a fun read that can accommodate frequent interruptions or provide a quick mid-day laugh, this is the book for you. The alibis are indexed, so you have the option to cherry pick the entries by your favorite author, but you can also check out new authors with very little commitment required! What better way to get to know a new author than to consider the question—would their alibi stand up in court? This book will appeal to fans of young adult fiction or mysteries in any format.

This book is a fun romp with many well known YA and children's authors like Lemony Snicket, Jon Scieszka, Libba Bray and many others. It was fun to see how all the different authors approached the same topic, an alibi for the time of the murder. Having said that however, I could only read this book in short installments since it is 70+ short essays on the same thing. Fun read. ( )

Loved. This. Book! I was excited to win an advance uncorrected edition of Who Done It through the Goodreads Giveaways program. Who Done It is an anthology of some of the hottest names in young adult and children's fiction. The book opens with an invitation to a party at an abandoned pickle factory which is being hosted by the notorious editor, Herman Mildew. When the guests arrive they learn that the party host has been murdered. Everyone is considered a suspect and must provide an alibi. This book was so much fun! Each short story was 4 pages or less but I was impressed by the creative shown in such short pieces. I also thought it was great that the book proceeds will benefit the non profit literacy program, 826NYC. I recommend this to fans of the mystery and humor genres. ( )
