It’s International Children’s Book Day!

As this is posted, it’s international Children’s Book Day. So, to celebrate, I thought it might be fun to share a children’s mystery. And this one’s been rated ‘really good’ by my granddaughter a genuine, certified, six-year-old book expert. Enjoy!

  1. That $10 I slipped Grumpy Toad to take the rap was worth every cent! *wipes crumbs off chin*

    Haha! Great fun, Margot! πŸ˜€

  2. Oh my gosh… this was such fun! Thank you for sharing.

  3. Loved it, Margot!!!! Such a valuable message, too. More cupcakes for you!

  4. I.Love.This! Thank you so much for the shout out Margot. I think we need this book in our house! We have MCavity The Mystery Cat and Detective Dog here so this would make an excellent addition for one of our 3 to reads. πŸ™‚ We’ve been the house of lurgy this last fortnight and I’m fed up with feeling ill 😷 . This really cheered me up, thank you πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for the kind words, D.D., and I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been ill! I hope you’re on the mend, and will be back to it soon. I actually do like the Pete the Cat series (there are several). Bright, large pictures, engaging stories, and rhymes. My granddaughter children’s literature expert gives the series five stars.

      And it’s a pleasure to mention your adult mysteries and your storytelling. You and Hugo the Detective Dog are a great pair!

      • Thanks, that’s very kind Margot. We’ve been slacking a bit lately but I’m hoping to be up to too storytelling form soon. It’s been a long line of viruses, and the two year old having possible chicken pox and conjunctivitus. I feel like putting a cross on the door to warn people lol.

        • Yikes! It’s bad enough to feel ill yourself, but add in a sick toddler, and it’s chaos! Poor thing! Poor little bean, too… πŸ˜‰ – I hope you’re all feeling better soon.

      • PS I’ve shared this on my storytelling page on fb but I can’t tag you so feel free to drop by and tag yourself so people can find you πŸ™‚

  5. This was so much fun! πŸ™‚ Loved it!

  6. Col

    Awesome! πŸ™‚

  7. That was a fantastic story. I’m always in awe of authors who can create stories for such young readers, story that can still be enjoyed but adult like… you know… us πŸ˜‰

    Amd you are a fantastic reader!!!!!!!!!

    • Thank you very much, Jazzfeathers πŸ™‚ – And I’m so glad you enjoyed the story. And I couldn’t agree more about authors who can create engaging stories for young readers. All the more admirable, as you say, when they can make those same stories interesting to those of who are chronological adults… πŸ˜‰

  8. That was great, and I am glad we are raising new mystery readers. And… the very appropriate hat!

  9. I love it, Margot! Fab job reading, too. It’s times like these when I miss reading to my kids when they were little. πŸ˜‰

What's your view? I'd love to hear it.
