The ending of the book brings up important morals on differences between individuals, the harm in assuming and teamwork. ( )

Children will love the mystery behind the missing chalk drawings. As the chalks try to figure out what happens to their drawings until they set a trap. What they find out is a good lesson to learn about judging others. The illustrations bring this story to life. A fun romp across the blackboard! ( )

After a satisfying drawing session in which they create some flowers, the chalk characters in this goofy picture-book mystery go inside for a story, only to discover that their drawings have been stolen, when they come outside again. After this happens again, Sergeant Blue is called on to the case, and quickly tracks down the thief - a red-bottomed eraser. But is all as it seems...?

Although titled The Case of the Red-Bottomed Robber in its original UK edition, this story from author/illustrator Richard Byrne was repackaged as The Case of the Missing Chalk Drawings for its publication in the USA. The reason for this change eludes me, unless the American publisher thought the original title was too suggestive? For my part, I find it amusing, and far more charming than the American revision. Leaving that issue aside, this was just a fun little tale, one that young crayon and chalk lovers are sure to enjoy. ( )
