    1. First sentence: 10:00 am, Headquarters. "Headquarters. Wilcox, here." "This is Henrietta Hen. My precious Penny is missing." "Did she fly the coop?" I asked. "Oh no! She can't fly." "Did she run away?" I probed. "Oh no! She can't run." "Can't fly or run? I've never heard of a chicken who couldn't cross the road." "She's not a chicken." "Not a chicken? What is she?" "An egg." I sure had egg on my face. "Are you sure she's gone?" "Yes, Detective. I always count my chickens before they hatch." "We' [...]


    2. A review from our 1st Grade Class:"It was very good because it had lots of funny jokes about food. It was really funny when they found Penny the egg and she could walk! She wiggled and wobbled! The bunny was funny too because she was in her pajamas and she loved carrot cake. The fight at the end had our class laughing so hard our teacher had to settle us down! The silly rooster made so many mistakes that he got caught. He needs to learn how to write the letter "e"!"



    3. Hilarious pun filled mystery series with very cute, bright illustrations. In this book the two mouse detectives on the farm are asked to solve the case of a missing egg.


    4. Newman's writing is pitch perfect for the genre and style of mystery. Though, possibly, a bit more sophisticated humor than typical of 7 year olds, the story is still enjoyable for readers at any age. This series is welcomed for readers that are ready for a challenge but do not have the stamina for a longer chapter book.


    5. Wonderful beginning reader! Pun-filled mystery that really cracked me up ;-)Quite a bit of text here and some tricky vocabulary so beginning readers may need to read it along with an adult. The book doesn't have a baby book appearance so older more accomplished readers won't be embarrassed by checking it out. Cartoon style illustrations add to the fun.


    6. Love this series - there are so many times I laugh out loud because of the silly puns and figurative language. Would make a great, quick read aloud, especially to look as a mentor text to look at how the author played with language.


    7. This is a wonderful fast-moving chapter book, especially engaging for budding young detectives! It's a laugh-a-minute for 10 year-old gumshoes, who also go in for funny, silly puns and tongue-in-cheek word play!The two mice investigators, Wilcox and Griswold, are called to Ed's Farm by Henrietta Hen to find Penny, who has been 'egg-napped'. The detectives have a cast of intriguing–and delightfully illustrated–animal suspects to interrogate, all with possible motives. There's a ransom note, " [...]


    8. If you call out to a group of children asking them who wants to play a game, you will get a unanimous chorus of me. If you tell them they need to search for clues to solve a mystery, the excitement grows. Guys and gals love to laugh. They are perfectly wired to sense the humor in almost any situation; the sillier the better. They also become attached to characters in books they enjoy. They will reread these books over and over because they don't want to leave those fictional individuals.Fans of [...]


    9. Fans of Wilcox and Griswold will cheer at the return of the their favorite no-nonsense mice detectives in Robin Newman’s latest crime caper, The Case of the Poached Egg.  Spirited and comical, Newman is a master at writing highly entertaining food-based wordplay. The characters are quirky, dramatic and memorable.  She creates the right amount of suspense that will keep kids engaged and turning pages to figure out who poached Penny. Her pacing is exceptional and readers will like the c [...]
