Lost Property

by Bruce Ingman

One Potato Review

A day in the life. If you’re looking for the cosmic wormhole into which all lost things disappear – socks, umbrellas, flowers of a particular color, a letter in your name – then this is probably going to prove disappointing, still here is a story that sneaks up on you: the dog chases the mailman, a father sings in the shower, a mother tends her picturesque garden before there’s even a hint of anything amiss. Splashy watercolors will appeal to very young readers. Ingman’s relentless good cheer may be sufficient for everyone else.
