Mystery, Alphabet, Animals, Crime, Preschool, Excellent
This alphabet book is going normally until the cake on letter C page is stolen. Bear, representing letter B, is determined to find the culprit, but he needs a little help from the readers. Bear leads the reader from page to page looking for clues. Bear thinks Fox might be the culprit, but Gingerbread Man testifies that Fox has changed since he took a bite out of him. Bear then wanders if it might be Octopus since, after all, his tentacles are all over the pages. As Bear questions more characters, the evidence piles up, and soon the perpetrator is confirmed.
