This devilishly funny story about a family of Peeping Toms is custom-made for the debut of Delphine Durand's edgy, funky style of illustration that perfectly captures every hilarious detail. Peeking and prying busybodies, the Snoops know everything about everybody who lives on Keyhole Place--they see Miss Spankie (who lost her hankie) wiping her nose on her sleeve; Loco Louie painting Mr. Cramp's cat; and even Slippery Sam slinking off through the bushes after stealing a kiss. But the riled residents find a way to turn the tables when they snoop on the Snoops--and the reader can join them! By peeking into a keyhole-shaped concertina, children can catch the embarrassing antics of the Snoops at home. Refreshingly irreverent, Moss is not afraid to be a little naughty--the Snoops record everything from Mr. James' leopard-print underpants to an extensive map of what the dog did where. Both kids and adults will get a kick out of the rhythmic, bawdy text complemented by Durand's outrageously illustrated cast of characters.
