Harry Webb in ‘A Potato With Her Name On’ by Jason Pinnington is a short, fun book you should add to your library. I can help with that by giving away three eBook (amazon.com) copies.

I loved this off-the-wall throwback to 1940’s detective stories. That the main characters were a down-on-his-luck spider detective and his gumshoe apprentice who also happens to be a fly (insect dynamics are more “civilized” in this story) whose name is Marty (which I think is an intentional shout-out to Back to the Future) made this soft-boiled crime caper all the more enjoyable.
The comedy comes in many varieties, from subtle to slapstick (well, slap with a rolled up newspaper, anyway). The narrative and tone of the story is private-eye noir, but appropriate for children and very fun reading for adults.
I am looking forward to getting tangled up in more adventures of Harry Webb, and also to leaving any more insect puns up to Harry and his pals.
