Stop Thief by Heather Tekavec

Max, said the farmer to his dog one day, can you catch a thief? Of course! He can catch anything! And Max eagerly sets off on a quest to find the culprit who has been stealing the farmer's fruits and vegetables. Within moments, the dog is confident he has spotted the thief - a tiny blue bug, working on a carrot top. Stop, thief! Max cries as the bug flies away. Undaunted, Max chases after the bug, from the carrots to the berries to the beans and the cherries, until, eventually, Max watches in satisfaction as the bug flies away over the farm fence. What Max totally misunderstands in his enthusiasm, however - and what youngsters will figure out right away - is that the tiny blue bug isn't the thief at all. The real thieves are hiding in plain sight, right under his nose!
