A fun educational book by an award-winning author
Reviewed in the United States on May 28, 2018
Award winner Karl Beckstand's mystery is really funny, even delightful and clever, and it is an enjoyable way to learn some Spanish. The story is told in both English and in Spanish, and the book has a pronunciation guide. (Did you know, for example, that the Spanish for stairs is escaleras, similar to the word we use in English escalators?)
In this rhyming mystery, we read that there are crumbs all over, on the bear, the stairs, the squares, the tear in the chairs, the hair on cousin Claire, in fact everywhere. We read the mystery for the fun of it, and to find out who did it and why.
