Reviews - What do customers think about Veggie Tales: Slobfather (Mess Detectives)?

A must have  Nov 2, 2006
My daughter received this book as a gift and loves it. As an adult I love to read it to her. We never get tired of the silliness or message.A must have on my childrens book list.
Great For Teaching Everybody About Telling the Truth!  Jan 3, 2005
I own this book because it's the perfect way for telling the truth and why we shouldn't lie. I strongly recommend this book for kids, but I also suggest it for teens because I myself lied and I won't do it again. There are three reasons why I like it:

1. It kind of has a replica of certain detective agencies and the desk, desk lamp, and the trench coat Larry is wearing are some examples

2. It's silly and it can keep you laughing for hours like the way Larry drives the police car and Bob does some things that makes kids laugh like hitting his head on the roof of the car. There's also another funny moment: when Larry blew his nose in his notepad! Ha, ha, ha!

3. It teaches kids an important lesson about telling the truth so that Junior Asparagus (and kids and especially teens) can never lie again. Not ever.

This book is perfect for kids aged four to eight, but even the entire family can enjoy it, too!
Great for teaching about lying!  May 13, 2004
As a teacher of first grade, I can honestly say that this book is a wonderful tool for teaching children about the messes that lies create in our lives. This book is extremely silly so the subject of lying is more approachable by children. My four-year-old niece pretends to read this story to me every day and we just love it!
