Chapter Two Is Missing

Penguin/Razorbill. Oct. 2019. 48p. Tr $17.99. ISBN 9781984835482.
Gr 1-3–The narrator needs your help to find chapter two and continue the story in this highly interactive tale. As the narrator searches for the missing chapter, he teams up with detective McGarrigan, Milo the janitor, and you. With each chapter, clues are discovered, dialogue is exchanged, and readers are left questioning the very fabric of the book itself. Lieb has outdone himself with this intricate plot. There is humor, suspense, shouting, and a lot of grammar play throughout the journey. Cornell’s detailed, noir-style illustrations provide character depth and create a world in which everyone must solve the mystery. The illustrations also highlight certain characters’ emotions and clues. Lieb and Cornell have created a fantastic picture book that will draw readers in and give them all the clues they need to find chapter two.
VERDICT A hilarious interactive tale that will help children learn intense analytical skills.
