Review: Inspector Flytrap
Inspector Flytrap is a Venus Flytrap who happens to be a detective. He gets around on a skateboard pushed by his trusty sidekick, Nina the goat. He wants to be “the greatest detective that ever grew” so he’ll only take on BIG DEAL mysteries.
INSPECTOR FLYTRAP by husband and wife duo Tom Angleberger and Cece Bell is the first book in a fun new series for early readers featuring the botanical detective. The mysteries are silly so it will keep its target audience fully engaged. Cece Bell’s adorable illustrations do a great job livening up the pages. I really enjoyed this book as an adult and know I would have loved it as a kid. It’s perfect for reluctant readers and kids who enjoy mysteries. Here’s a peek at the interior:
The first two books in The Inspector Flytrap series are already out and the third one will be out soon so it’s a great series to get a young reader hooked on. Be sure to check it out for the young readers in your life.
