Summary: Ducktective Web and his partner solve crimes in nursery-rhyme land. The tone of the book is film noir detective style. The font is New Courier, like a typewriter, and the illustrations are simple but effective.
Activities: This book might be a cute Read-Aloud for primary, but older kids will appreciate the humor. The film noir style might appeal to fans of Chet Gecko. The connections to nursery rhymes are pretty sophisticated. This could springboard into a writing assignment of your own Nursery Rhyme Mysteries, or it could just be fun, light independent reading for grades 3-6.
