Mystery of Eatum Hall

The Mystery of Eatum Hall By John Kelly and Cathy Tincknell is a fabulous book to use if you're teaching foreshadowing or covering the genre of mysteries. This book is especially good to use when discussing picture clues. It's geared for a grade 2-4 audience that will appreciate the play on words of a pig and goose married couple whose last name is Pork-Fowler. This story is about Glenda and Horace Pork-Fowler who are invited by Dr. A. Hunter to a weekend of gourmet eating. Throughout the illustrations you notice that Dr. Hunter is a wolf who has actually lured them there to be fattened up and eaten on Sunday as a pie feast. It's Dr. Hunter who ends up surprised though...
