Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Quirky whodonit - a good read

I liked this story. It's very innocent - no sex, language or serious violence. It has a fun story with quirky characters and a narrator with a hilarious point of view. Great for late elementary and early middle school readers.
