Not an Alphabet Book: The Case of the Missing Cake

Written by Eoin McLaughlin

Illustrated by Marc Boutavant

Not an Alphabet Book: The Case of the Missing Cake Synopsis

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...
