Missing Mitten Mystery, The

Missing Mitten Mystery, The

by Steven Kellogg Illustrated by Steven Kellogg

Annie and her dog, Oscar, have had a busy day playing in the snow. Somehow Annie's red mitten has disappeared (that makes five this winter!) in all the fun. They look high and low...

It's not on the sledding hill, and it's not by the snow castles. Maybe an eagle carried it off to keep its baby's head warm. Or maybe a mouse is using it as a sleeping bag. When the sun goes down, Annie and Oscar have to give up their search and go inside. But when Annie looks out the window, something red catches her eye...and when she does finally find it, it is a delightful surprise for anyone who has a heart.
