This is the second book in the series that I picked up at my local library by Caroline Adderson. This book is super cute too. And it is hilarious.
Bored of hide-and-seek and knights, Jasper and his friends invent a new recess game–treasure hunters.
But it’s not until later, during a visit to his Nan’s that Jasper digs up a real treasure: Marcel Mouse, his dad’s all-time favorite toy when he was a kid.
Marcel swings in crazy loops. He has his own catchy song. And best of all, Marcel Mouse is an adventurer.
But Marcel is tricky too. First he goes missing from under Jasper’s pillow. Then he gets send to the principal’s office and disappears again!
As Jasper hunts high and low for Marcel, he has an adventure of his own, uncovering the mysteries of toilet water and a top-secret video game. Then something terrible happens. It seems Marcel might be lost forever. Will Jasper ever see Marcel Mouse again?
I loved this one hour read from start to finish!
