THE MISSING DONUT by Judith Henderson. Illus. by Trenton; McBeth.  
Canada: Kids Can Press Ltd., 2018. 52p. ISBN: 978-1771387880 hc. 
$12.99  Gr. K-3   E PIC

Not quite a graphic novel, but also not quite a "normal" picture 
book, this story keeps readers' eyes bouncing from picture to 
picture and word to word. Judith Henderson teaches her readers 
great big new words in clever, creative ways. By the end, all 
the big words are employed in a few zany sentences, testing if 
the reader was paying attention or not, and concluding the story 
with this great word recap.  Sectioned into several small stories, 
this book follows the adventures of Cris and his cat as they 
acquire new words, solve mysteries, visit museums and shoe stores, 
and generally, just have some wacky learning adventures.
