When Miss Rabbit’s carrot cake vanishes, Missing Food Investigators (MFIs) Captain Griswold and Detective Wilcox take the case and solve the crime. The first Wilcox and Griswold Mystery establishes the two mouse investigators and the setting on Ed’s Farm, using familiar but distinct characters that children will easily recognize such as a grumpy owl and gluttonous pig. With six short chapters, The Case of the Missing Carrot Cake is the perfect choice for newly independent readers who are just shy of moving on to chapter books. However, Detective Wilcox’s unique narrative voice also makes this book a great read aloud option for a slightly younger audience. Zemke’s color illustrations fit perfectly with the story’s tone and break up the text well. The faux case file design of the front and back matter contribute to the comedic mystery theme and add to the fun of how seriously the MFIs take the case. The conclusion nicely wraps up this first but hopefully not only case in the series, and an included recipe for carrot cake is yet another fun element to this food mystery. Among the most original advanced early readers of the year, The Case of the Missing Carrot Cake is highly recommended for ages four to seven. ( )
