by Allan Ahlberg & illustrated by Katharine McEwen. Fans of the resourceful Gaskitt family, introduced in The Man Who Wore All His Clothes (2001), will welcome this new, multi-stranded caper.

by Allan Ahlberg & illustrated by Katharine McEwen. While Mrs. Gaskitt is at home winning a year’s supply of Crunchy Mice Cat Food, a houseful of new furniture and other prizes from various sweepstakes, the arrival of a grandmotherly substitute teacher, Mrs. Plum, at school coincides with such a sudden rash of missing possessions that the Gaskitt twins and their classmates begin to get suspicious.

As Mr. Gaskitt takes a series of jobs and Mrs. Gaskitt keeps winning prizes, their nine-year-old twins, Gus and Gloria, follow a substitute teacher who seems too good to be true.

Allan Ahlberg's fascination with remoulding learning-to-read stories has had several incarnations, including the Red Nose Readers for the very young and the more sophisticated Happy Family series in which, matched with a number of different illustrators, he created funny and original stories with a limited vocabulary and lots of repetition. Here he is back on similar territory, with an inventive tale about Mrs Gaskitt, who wins things, a thief and a school-teacher (well, they turn out to be the same person) and a couple of cats.

I did not read this book myself, but I'm giving it five stars precisely for that reason! This book caught my 8-year-old daughter's attention and she read it on her own. It has been very difficult to find books that she enjoys enough to read on her own, but we found one. Yippee! She enjoyed the mystery in the plot and the charming illustrations (I did look at those).

We love all things Ahlberg at our house. And the Gaskitt Family series is particularly great for kids just starting to read chapter books but who like lots of pictures sprinkled about (the excellent illustrations are by Katharine McEwen). The series includes The Cat Who Got Carried Away, The Children Who Smelled a Rat, and the Man Who Wore All His Clothes. They are silly mysteries, packed with cats with attitude, good twins and evil twins, and plenty of talking doormats, clocks, and refrigerators.

This series of books is a hoot. There is something irresistible about the illustrations and the madcap situations. Very weird substitute teacher/thief. Very weird situation where the father does odd jobs in strange professions, and the mother runs around kissing him during the work day.

It's just weird, but really funny and enjoyable.
