Ellie + Ace: Case of the Bedtime Bandit

Toodles, T. and W. Whistlehoot. (2014). Ellie + Ace: The Case of the Bedtime Bandit. Houston: Rogor Publishing. 

Children's ages 5-8 / Chapter Book / Mystery / Humor

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars

Ellie and her super sleuth dog, Ace are destined to become famous detectives -- if only they can find plenty of cases to solve.  Fortunately, there are mysteries abounding in their town, including toppled garbage cans and items that go missing in the night.  Will Ellie and Ace crack the case of the bedtime bandit and become famous detectives?

The illustrations are done in black and white with eye-catching splashes of red that kids will love -- and the main characters are adorable. Plus, with chapter titles like "Smelly Brother Funk . . . Eww," kids will be giggling their way all the way through the short, engaging chapters.  An added element of fun is reading about the authors and the illustrator.

Thank you to eBooks For Review for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review -- the only kind I give.
