“Think like a detective!” So suggests the heroine’s mother at the loss of a prized stuffed animal. Neither her father nor her sister has the patience for the search. As the frustration point nears, something has to be done, and Jules Feiffer comes through with signature originality. Given the humor and exaggeration in Feiffer’s illustrations, this book demands a narrator who can provide matching embellishment and gusto. Kristen Hahn does just that. Hahn bawls with aggravation and despair. She adds just the right note for father’s annoyance as he talks over the newspaper. How aggrieved can an older sister be as she stretches out every word? And she is as sweet as can be when nighttime arrives. A.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE/JULY 05]
