The Case of the Missing Donut

Alison McGhee

Sheriff (a small boy) and his Deputy (a loyal dog) are sent on an errand to buy a dozen donuts. As they trot home Sheriff decides to peek into the box: "Better take a look-see, Deputy," says the sheriff. One donut looks a little crumbly, and Sheriff's willpower crumbles with it. He can't resist the delicious powdered donut - his sugar- coated cheeks tell the truth. Everyone comments on the donuts, Sheriff is perplexed - how do they know what's in his box? McGhee's deadpan text and Roxas' action-filled illustrations tell a clever and playful story. Ages 4-6
