About the Author:

Brian Rock received a master s degree in Children s Literature and Creative Writing from Hollins University. Brian s short stories for children appear regularly in the regional magazine Kid s World and his poems for children have appeared in Highlights for Children, Poetry Train, and various regional publications. His short story, The Frog Dad, was selected as one of the inaugural titles for iPulpFiction s Don t Read This in the Dark series. For six years Brian worked in the Chesterfield County public school system teaching at-risk students.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2-Who stole a cake from the cake contest? That's the question Detective Duck must answer as he interviews 13 potential perpetrators. One by one, suspects are eliminated. Clues such as window height, time of the theft, footprints, and suspicious strands of hair help to narrow the pool of possible wrongdoers whose physical attributes or behavior don't fit the crime. In the end all evidence points to the only possible thief. It is Monkey, who confesses his motive: "I couldn't help it....It was a banana cream cake!" This outstanding lesson in logic serves as a clear and simple model for the art of deductive reasoning. In addition, all the elements of a great detective story are included, providing an excellent introduction to the mystery genre. Charm and humor abound from the playful cartoon illustrations to the hilarious wordplay. Educational extension activities are provided, adding even more value to a story that combines learning and fun.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CTα(c) Copyright 2013.
