Dakota Crumb: Tiny Treasure Hunter (Dakota Crumb)

by Jamie Michalak (Author) Kelly Murphy (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade
Series: Dakota Crumb

In a clever take on the "night at the museum" theme, a little mouse with a genius for collecting leads picture book readers--and seek-and-find aficionados--on a thrilling nocturnal adventure.

Dakota Crumb: Tiny Treasure Hunter is both a rollicking story with a dash of danger and, in its final eye-popping spreads, a seek-and-find challenge. As the clock in the great museum tick-toocks pas midnight, a little mouse with a sack and a treasure map scurries past the guards. Plucky and intrepid Dakota Crumb scours the museum for artifacts, including the rare purple jewel of Cairo (a gumdrop stashed in an exhibit). By day, the little mouse shares her carefully curated finds with fellow tiny creatures that flock to Miss Crumb's tiny Mousehole Museum. A feast for sharp-eyed readers--who'll delight in circling back after the story to pore over the illustrations in search of treasure--this gently suspenseful tale, splashed with soft, dusky hues, evokes a world of wonders after dark.
