About the Book 

Connor and Owen love playing with the big yellow dump truck at camp. But one morning, they discover that it is missing! Did someone steal the truck? Who is the culprit? Readers will have to pay attention to the details and use their sleuthing skills to help Connor and Owen solve the mystery! 

The story combines the classic ingredients of a good mystery – clues, suspects, red herrings – with the fun and relatable elements of a children’s book. While most children’s mysteries are chapter books, The Mystery of the Missing Dump Truck is a beautifully illustrated 32-page picture book that introduces young readers to the mystery genre. 


Mysteries get kids to think differently and pay attention to details they might not otherwise notice. As you're reading the book, ask your little readers to look for clues and what their predictions are!
