Minnie and Moo: The Case of the Missing Jelly Donut by Denys Cazet

The Case of the Missing Jelly DonutIn an effort to update our Easy Funny Books list, I came across this clever and humorous story.  Not only would it appeal to 1st – 3rd graders, but I really enjoyed it too (which I can’t really say so much for some of the other books on the list – maybe if I was in 2nd grade).  The story starts out with Minnie noticing that her jelly donut is gone and Moo consequently deciding that someone has stolen it!  Moo finds a blue feather and believes it is the clue needed to solve the crime.  He leads them on a “wild goose chase” looking for the blue chicken who must be the culprit.  In the end, Moo discovers that the culprit is Minnie herself!  Minnie must have sat on the donut and has been walking around with it on her bottom this whole time.  What a surprise ending (so to speak).  Really cute and clever, and I was surprised by the ending too!
