  • Summary:

    Teddy is Missing! Charlotte can't imagine her life without her best friend. She must get him back, so she enlists the aid of the most famous kid detective, the Great Gumshoe. Together they search the town for clues. Will they find Teddy? Will Charlotte ever play with her best friend again? The Great Gumshoe must use all of his skills to track Teddy down. This is a fun and fast paced detective story. In the 1930's, there were no high-tech gadgets to unravel the mystery. The Great Gumshoe must rely on his magnifying glass, quick wit, and powers of observation to solve the case. The Great Gumshoe is an 8 X 8, 32 page picture book. It is recommended for ages 4 to 7 years old.


    The Great Gumshoe is a delighful mystery story for children of all ages. Written in the style of the 1930's the author does an amazing job bringing the story to life. Though the pages are filled with colorful illustrations, tones of the black and white film era are projected throughout. The feel of Humphrey Bogart will encompass the reader as they follow along with the detective as he uses his magnifying glass and wits to solve the case, helping a girl in need find her most valued possession in the most interesting of places.. The illustrations are brought to life by Christy Beckwith and the use of bright pastels. The colors are brillant as they leap off the page, yet darkened to give the reader the feel of the era. But why do they call him The Great Gumshoe? Readers must read the book to find out.
