INSPECTOR FLYTRAP by Tom Angleberger and Cece Bell

Posted on Updated on

Inspector Flytrap is a BIG DEAL detective. He only takes big deal cases. Missing pickle paper weight? Not a big deal. A caper at the art gallery?   Now that sounds more like it! With his trusty skateboard and his assistant goat, there’s no case too big for this plant!   So why don’t his clients seem grateful?…

 This very quick, very silly read features short chapters, comical illustrations, and a ridiculous plot that will most likely appeal to readers in grades 2 and 3.  It may grab some reluctant readers. It is unlikely, however, to appeal as much to older readers  or the established Origami Yoda fan base.   Although nominally a mystery, it is really just  humor.   If you’re looking for a humorous noir-style mystery series for younger readers, I would recommend the Chet Gecko  series–noting that the reading level on Chet Gecko is slightly higher.
