Delightful! What a great picture book for strong readers– the kind of book that will entrance the Magic Tree House set and convince them a picture book is still worth reading. Hermelin is a clever little mouse who likes to solve mysteries. (He takes his name from a cheese wrapper.) He uses a typewriter to communicate via notes, revealing the solutions to all sorts of problems his neighbors experienced. Well, people had no idea that the brilliant detective, Hermelin, is a mouse! The typewritten notes and all the clues in the pictures tell a great story worth poring over.
