Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
When Benny finds his missing baseball cap at the library's lost and found, he also finds a set of keys and decides to try and find the owner. The library won't let Benny take the keys out of the library, but he does talk his sister, Violet, into drawing a picture of the keys and sets out on a mystery to find out who lost them. A bank key chain, a tag with "I love donuts" and a small blue dog tag lead Benny to the correct person, a woman who worked in a bike shop and owned a dog name Donuts. Everyone is suitably impressed and the woman who lost the keys is grateful that Benny was able to tell her where she could find her misplaced keys. The hero of the story is a young boy who is eager to help others, but is also curious about things and uses simple clues to figure out a mystery that none of the adults in the story could figure out. Fully-illustrated, the text is suitable for early readers who are just beginning to be interested in longer stories that they can read for themselves. A "Boxcar Children Early Reader," this book is number 11 in the "Adventures of Benny and Watch" series. 2004, Albert Whitman & Company, Ages 6 to 7.
