Creative, energetic, and full of fun, this mystery is a unique take on storytelling that will delight young readers. Chapter Two is Missing weaves words and illustrations together with silly banter to make the book more about the behind-the-scenes making of the book than the mystery itself. Saying the words with missing letters makes reading aloud fun and entertaining, and here's a tip for anyone who wants to know the truth about Chapter 2: Unless the reader is proficient in reading backward, have a mirror handy to see how the mystery is solved.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
