Officer Panda: Fingerprint Detective by Ashley Crowley - OPTIONAL

Crowley, Ashley  Officer Panda: Fingerprint Detective Harper, 2015.  $17.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.   

Officer Panda is trying to solve the mystery of where all the fingerprints are coming from.  They are found in the city, the forest, on the animals and everywhere he goes.  After he returns home, he is even more concerned because he sees fingerprints all over inside his house.  He realizes that the fingerprints are coming from the reader.   

This story was boring and to have the reader brought in at the ending as the suspect was annoying.  The illustrations are bland and it just didn’t appeal to me on any level.  The most interesting part of the whole book was at the back when the author included facts about fingerprints.   

EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
