School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-- Aunt Eater, introduced in Aunt Eater Loves a Mystery (HarperCollins, 1987), returns. Would-be sleuths can try to solve the mysterious disappearances of a ferry captain, a diamond ring, and a dinosaur bone, and determine the identity of a strange woman. Cushman enhances his text with numerous watercolor illustrations that assist readers with visual clues. Children will appreciate Aunt Eater's excitement when she rings the ferry's ``All Ashore'' bell and meets her favorite author. Another good addition to the series. --Gale W.

Horn Book Review

Aunt Eater, an anteater, loves to read mysteries and actually solves several while on vacation. Large print, an open format, and an easy text combine with colorful illustrations to create a satisfying chapter book. From HORN BOOK 1992, (c) Copyright 2010.

Booklist Review

Gr. 1-2. Here's a sprightly, easy-to-read chapter book starring amateur detective Aunt Eater, who is looking forward to a relaxing vacation reading mystery novels. Unfortunately, nothing works out as planned. First, the captain of the cruise ship she's on disappears, then a hotel guest is the victim of theft, and Professor Slagbottom's dinosaur bone goes astray. Aunt, of course, is up to each challenge, and beginning readers are bound to enjoy her simply written, straightforward adventures. Each chapter is a story in itself, the type is large and clear, and the artwork is brightly colored and plentiful--Aunt is especially fetching, decked out in a mop cap with granny glasses.
