  1. hey, no objection to a kids’ mystery, but could you please not plagiarize a famous title from the surreal movement of the 20th century? On the other hand, i imagine Tristan Zora and Apollinaire might find it mildly amusing

  2. I did wonder about the choice of name for a kids project… Might lead to some interesting reading if someone thinks they are connected.

  3. Although the practice kind of started out in the surrealist movement, most people associate “Exquisite Corpse” with the dinner party game. The name might be a little odd for a kids’ mystery, but I don’t think many people are going to be confused by it. It’s certainly not plagiarizing.
