Betty's Burgled Bakery: An Alliterative Adventure

(3) K-3 With large panels and legible font, this picture-book graphic novel is a silly mystery combining clever alliterative wordplay with appealing characters and gentle humor. The animal PIs of Gumshoe Zoo, drawn in pencil and digitally colored, help sleep-eating panda Betty realize her own culpability in the alleged burglary of her bakery. Back matter explains the (effectively used) device of alliteration and provides trivia about animal eating habits.
