"Is it time for my garden party to begin?" Lady Tasha asked her butler, Tyrone. "I can't wait to show off my famous collection of priceless jeweled eggs!""Look, my lady," Butler Tyrone answered. "Here come your first guests."If you own the Mission to Mars DVD, then you're no doubt familiar with the episode Whodunit?, which features Detective Pablo (looking much like Sherlock Holmes!) on the case at Mystery Manor to discover who stole Tasha's jewels.With a similar plot, The Mystery of the Jeweled Eggs finds Lady Tasha hosting a party to show off her famous collection of gem-encrusted eggs. However, some time after Butler Tyrone places them in the gazebo, the eggs mysteriously disappear!Fortunately, Detective Pablo is on the case, as is his assistant, Inspector Uniqua. Mr. Frothingslosh (say THAT fast three times!)--played by the dapper, monocled Austin--also attends the party and, amid eating finger sandwiches on the lawn, Detective Pablo gets to the bottom of the mystery!I picked up The Mystery of the Jeweled Eggs for my son since Spring and Easter is fast approaching. But this delightful book can be enjoyed any time of the year! If your child enjoyed Whodunit?--or likes mysteries--they'll especially like this book.Colorful and engaging, this would make a great bedtime story--as well as a fine book for readers around ages 5-8.
I think this is another wonderful book by the backyardigans! They use there imagination to bring these stories to life. My almost 5 year old loves them as well as my 2 year old. I would highly recommend any of the series books.
This book is a little different than the TV episode with the stolen jewels, but my daughter still loves it. She likes finding the clues and eggs on each page. Worth the $.
My daughter 4.5 loves this book, she is in to mysteries and detective work....I hide pretend coins and jewlery around the house and she loves to play detective and find them...so this book is right up her alley...the jeweled eggs go missing and little clues are left. My daughter loves to point them out on the pages. Cute book.,I only gave it 4 stars because I save 5 for books that I think are exceptional.
