About the Author
Jamie Michalak is the author of Dakota Crumb: Tiny Treasure Hunter, illustrated by Kelly Murphy; the Frank and Bean books, illustrated by Bob Kolar; the Joe and Sparky series, illustrated by Frank Remkiewicz; and many other acclaimed titles for young readers. She lives in Rhode Island.

Kelly Murphy is the award-winning author-illustrator of The Boll Weevil Ball and illustrator of Dakota Crumb: Tiny Treasure Hunter by Jamie Michalak; Creepy Monsters, Sleepy Monsters and Romping Monsters, Stomping Monsters, both by Jane Yolen; and many other picture books and chapter books. She lives in Rhode Island.
Seek-and-find fans will particularly enjoy the last page, where Michalak offers a peek at 18 objects illustrated in Dakota's little book and invites kids to look through their picture book's illustrations again to discover each prize for themselves. Murphy's distinctive pen-and-ink artwork, digitally colored with subtle hues, is lively in its portrayal of the mice and stunning in its depiction of Paris. A playful picture book packed with hidden treasures.

In this follow-up to Dakota Crumb (2021), a request from her cousin Julien sends a mouse investigator to Paris to hunt down a most important book. . . . Murphy's precisely drawn interiors, festooned with small details, invite readers to follow along and, perhaps, be first to spot the next clue. . . . An engaging offering for sharp-eyed young adventurers.
