About the Author
Praise For Who Pushed Humpty Dumpty?: And Other Notorious Nursery Tale Mysteries…
The New York Times, August 23, 2012:
"That’s the way the nursery rhyme crumbles in these humorous retellings, cast in the world of hard-boiled crime and private detectives."
The Huffington Post, August 6, 2012:
"The first children's book from the wildly creative Levinthal and I hope it won't be the last."
Booklist, September 15, 2012:
"Kids will certainly be familiar with all these stories, and Levinthal supplies just enough of a twist with each one to make them fresh again without necessarily reinventing any of them. What’ll really stop kids in their tracks, though, is Nickle’s acrylic artwork. His sophisticated touch is as equally suited to the dramatic, black-andwhite re-creations of the crimes as it is to the cheeky scenes of Binky gumshoeing about with various woodland creatures."
School Library Journal, September 2012:
"The tongue-in-cheek telling of tales will tickle the fancies of children familiar with the originals."
