Detective Paw of the Law: The Case of Piggy's Bank

(2) K-3 Time to Read series. In each of these lively beginning-chapter-book whodunits, Detective Paw, a Hercule Poirot–esque canine, and Patrol Officer Prickles, an action-oriented porcupine employing crime-fighting gadgets, follow the same procedural pattern to solve a robbery (Bank) and a band instrument theft (Drumsticks). Given the illustrations' visual hints, young readers may well guess the straightforward outcomes, but in doing so they’re also working each case and learning that reading is an active process. Review covers these Time to Read titles: Detective Paw of the Law: The Case of Piggy's Bank and Detective Paw of the Law: The Case of the Stolen Drumsticks.
