In the colorful and letter-filled Capital City, there's never a moment's rest for Private I, the city's best investigator. Trouble seems to always have a way of finding him—trouble with a capital T. On this particular day, T tells Private I that his watch is missing. And T isn't alone—the citizens of Capital City have lost track of timepieces all over town! Can Private I catch the perp and make up for lost time before it's too late?
Wordplay and visual quips abound in this clever and uncontrived sendup of the detective noir drama…Time flies when you’re having fun reading this terrifically silly spoof.
- "This book’s wordplay and visual humor are just right for the intended audience; time is sure to fly with Time Flies in the story-hour mix."—Horn Book
- “Emerging readers will enjoy the puns and wordplay…Old-fashioned fun to push kids into funny business; pair this with Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault’s Chicka Chicka Boom Boom or any in Eric Litwin, James Dean, and Kimberly Dean’s “Pete the Cat” series.”—School Library Journal
