Someone (or something!) forgot their shoes, got stuck in a tree trunk, hid under the table among other things. Readers are asked the question of "who" and the author presents a lineup of characters from which the reader has to use their thinking skills and imagination to pick the right answer.
This is fun to look at, even if you don't answer the questions. The scenes are cute and the characters have expressive personalities. Limiting the reader's choices to just a few characters helps them focus on using critical thinking skills and find the clues. All of the questions are a "who," which is just part of the fun. The "what" comes in talking about what is happening in the illustration.
Readers will enjoy answering the question and creating "scenes" from the activities illustrated on the pages. Having multiple-choice options on the page will help them feel confident as they solve each mystery.
Mystery solvers are presented with a question and are given "multiple choice" options to answer it.
The question and answer format make it easy to "play" with this book. Guide your reader to look at the different clues to help them choose from the array of options. Just in case, there is an answer sheet at the back of the book.

Borrow. You'll probably read this several times because your child will want to look at the different characters, but then they'll be ready to move on.
