by Laura Murray
Illustrated by Mike Lowery
G. P. Putnam’s Sons    
ISBN  9780593532409




“Murray’s rhyming text lends itself well to a read-aloud but will also hold solo readers’ attention. Lowery’s artwork uses an effective combination of full-page images and paneled scenes. . . No doubt fans of the picture books starring this edible detective will enjoy this tale.”—Kirkus Reviews

“It’s winning times two in this breezy summation of the frustration and triumph surrounding a beloved lost object, embodied by one smart cookie who’s also cute as a button.”
—Publishers Weekly
