This was a cute little chapter book for your young reader. I liked Lois's relationship with Miss Goldie. It was nice of her to find out what happened to Morris when he came missing. The chapters are short and will hold your child's attention. This is a good book to keep them entertained on a car trip. The book's illustrations are done so your child can use this book as a coloring book. They can make the scenes their own by coloring them the way they want to. A cute book.
