Picture Book Review: Dakota Crumb

Dakota Crumb by Jamie Michalak

Dakota Crumb: Tiny Treasure Hunter
by Jamie Michalak (Goodreads Author), Kelly Murphy (Illustrator)
5 out of 5 stars

Little Dakota the mouse goes on a dangerous journey through the museum to search for the long-lost treasure. Along the way, she finds a beautiful painting (a postage stamp), a historic statue (an action figure toy), and at last the shining treasure. But what will she do with the amazing prizes she has gathered?

This is such a cute book! Dakota is full of courage and resourcefulness. I just love stories about little mice making their way through a big world. I love all her funny adventures in the museum! The story encourages using your imagination.

One of the cool things about this book is that it is also a search-and-find. While Dakota is searching for the treasure, the reader can also search for the items listed in the back of the book. They are hidden in the background of every scene. I love the details in this book!

The illustrations are really colorful and interesting. I love the art style, and how expressive Dakota is.
