This text is a fun adaptation of the classic playground song. Help Skunk solve the mystery as he asks each of his animal friends, Mouse, Raven, Squirrel, Rabbit, Turtle, Raccoon, Snake, Beaver, and Frog, who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
A story, a song and a game to play--all about one of the favorite features in a child's life--cookies are the focus of this book. The cookie jar is clearly empty, but the crumb-y evidence leads Skunk down the trail to the lairs of many animal friends. No one takes responsibility for the loss, though, neither Mouse nor Raven nor Snake nor any of the others pictured so strikingly on these eye-catching pages. But finally the mystery is solved, and we are all invited to eat our cookies together. That's the time to turn back to page one and sing the song provided, learning in the process that blaming and being blamed are part of life and we can all end up friends in spite of it. 2000, Little Brown,
