Young Reader Reaction: Once my daughter caught on, she enjoyed it. A few of the scenarios she didn't get, which makes me think this would be best for elementary school aged children. Even so, she still had fun with it and asked to read it again.
Adult Reader Reaction: I enjoyed the book. It is different than any book that I've ever read. I liked that my daughter and I could interact and discuss which one was the right one.
Pros: What fun for curious minds and budding detectives! Who Done It? is an interactive and engaging read aloud that can be use for many things at home and in a classroom setting.
Borrow or Buy: Buy. This is a worthwhile, fun book that is different than most. I definitely think teachers could have lots of uses for it.
