Not an Alphabet Book: The Case of the Missing Cake
Eoin McLaughlin, Marc Boutavant
A graphic, bright, imaginative alphabet book, with a smart and laugh-out-loud whodunit twist.
This was meant to be a simple alphabet book but something has happened. Something horrible. The most terrible crime! The world’s most completely delicious, tongue-jinglingly, chocolaty cake has been … STOLEN!
As Bear travels from A to Z, visiting all sorts of characters, objects and extraordinary places along the way, can YOU help him search for the culprit? But, wait! Are those crumbs on Bear’s page? And are those Bear-shaped pawprints next to the empty cake stand? It seems our narrator might not be as reliable as we first thought…
A false narrative of funny incidents expertly captured with Boutavant's expressive characterisations makes this a sure-fire hit. * CBI * Featured in Mums & Tots. * Mums & Tots * McLaughlin's book proclaims itself to be "not an alphabet book", but it is of course a sneaky, witty way of reinforcing early literacy skills. -- Sara Keating * The Irish Times * This funny, subversive book should make both children and adults snigger. * The Guardian *
