Overview

“…this tale of doughnut perfidy takes the cake.” – The New York Times

The sheriff and his deputy dog have been charged with a mission: to bring a dozen donuts home safely. All seems to be going well until the young sheriff peeks inside the box to check on the tasty treats. They’re practically calling his name, and in the blink of an eye (and with just a few nibbles), a donut disappears! Wherever could that missing donut be? Luckily, this is one mystery the sheriff and his deputy are sure to bring to a close.

Praise

“Funny and expressive . . . a fun addition to most collections, especially where snack-themed stories are in high demand.” – School Library Journal

“The snappy text plays it straight, while the illustrations, drawn with graphite and colored digitally, hold the evidence that allows the reader in on the joke. Clever visual details play up the humor, and the characters are full of expression and movement.” – The Horn Book

“McGhee, co-author of the Bink and Gollie titles, has an enjoyably stagey flair to her text that will make it a readaloud treat…This is a stylish Western-lite picture book with an enjoyable twang, and viewers will develop a powerful hankering for their own box of treats.” – Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
