Inspector Hopper

by Doug Cushman

Published by HarperCollins, 2000
65 pages
ISBN: 0060283823


A fresh, funny, very easy reader showcases three short mystery stories featuring Inspector Hopper, a grasshopper private eye . . . er, private bug. First, he tracks down the missing Mrs. Ladybug, who didn't fly away home when Mr. Ladybug called. Then he helps mosquito Skeet find out what happened to his boat ("It looks like a leaf," says Eensy Weensy spider and others. "It is a leaf . . . but it is a good boat," says Skeet.) Then Hopper and his sidekick, McBugg, gain a surprising new ally and dispense some helpful detective advice on a night the full moon follows them home. Each story is more creative than the one before, with true child-centered humor kids will love, including witty references to some of the rhymes and songs they'll remember from early childhood. Friendly full-color illustrations appear on every page. CCBC categories: Easy Fiction.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
