This new Candlewick picture book is for the young explorers. There are clues and hints on every page so young story fans can help our treasure-hunting mouse complete her mission. Murphy’s detailed illustrations will give readers plenty to talk about even after the puzzle is solved. In fact you’ll want to look through the book again once you see the details on the last page. I’d say more, but I don’t want to spoil anyone’s adventure!

In a time when more and more children’s books are becoming over the top didactic, it’s nice to enjoy a fun little detective story for young children. And if you like it, there is another Dakota Crumb tale.

Ages 3 – 7 years.
