Big Bad Detective Agency

Cover: 'Big Bad Detective Agency'

Staff Review: "Big Bad Detective Agency" by Bruce Hale


Things were going well in Fairylandia for a reformed Wolfgang, a.k.a. the “Big Bad Wolf”, until the Three Little Pigs’ houses were vandalized and he is accused.  Arrested and released, he reluctantly teams up with Ferkel, the fourth little pig, and as the new “Big Bad Detective Agency” they set off to find the perpetrator. Things get really funny when they question Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, Goldilocks, Jack (but not his beanstalk) and Puss in Boots. This humorous, beginning chapter book with expressive illustrations will be sure to please children familiar with these childhood fairy tales and maybe shed some new light on the much-maligned “Big Bad Wolf."

Audience: children, tweens | Genre: fiction, humor
