No! The pages haven’t gone missing – it’s the entire chapter! And the narrator needs help to find it. Luckily, he has you – the reader – to help him on the case! Chapter Two is Missing written by Josh Lieb & illustrated by Kevin Cornell is a clever book! It uses wordplay, the illustrations, and typography to tell a story that is a mystery as well as a comedy.
In a playful way, the author is able to teach the reader about the importance of all the different parts of a book – the grammar, the page numbers, the letters, the characters, and even the blank spaces!
This would be a great book to read with the kids! It’s bound to give them a giggle!
