Not an alphabet book : the case of the missing cake
There has been a terrible crime, Bear tells us. Someone has STOLEN a delicious chocolate cake! Bear sets off to find the culprit, questioning characters and compiling clues from A to Z. Among the suspects: a gingerbread man (G) with a bite out of his head, a kite (K) that may be above the law, and an octopus (O) with grabby tentacles. But -- hold on -- are those crumbs on Bear's page? Is that frosting on his face? Looks like our narrator is a little unreliable! And it appears our culprit might be the one that Bear wants readers to suspect the least of all. . . . Author Eoin McLaughlin's sly, cheeky humor takes the alphabet book to inventive new heights, while best-selling illustrator Marc Boutavant's smart and striking graphic-style art matches the irreverent tone. Young ABC learners and older fans of funny stories will laugh out loud at Bear's uproarious "investigation" and his anything-but-usual suspects.
