Yep. You see the cover correctly. The main character in Inspector Flytrap (Lexile: 510; Interest Level: Grades 1-4) by Tom Angleberger and Cece Bell is a Venus Flytrap. He is pushed around on his skateboard by his faithful assistant, Nina the Goat. And, yes, he is a detective who solves BIG DEAL mysteries.
The story begins with Mr. Flytrap--I mean INSPECTOR Flytrap--answering his phone at his detective agency. He likes to screen for BIG DEAL mysteries, not just small ones!
This early chapter book contains color illustrations on almost every page, and will certainly make you laugh as you try to solve the mystery before the Inspector! Fans of Tom Angleberger and Cece Bell, as well as fans of anything funny, will enjoy this book. And, it is the first book in a series! (112 p.)
One of the reasons I became an elementary school librarian is so I can read children's books.
