Jackie and the Shadow Snatcher. Jackie is on his way home from school when he discovers that his shadow is gone! Did he lose it just like he lost his lunch pail and math book or could this be the work of the elusive Shadow Snatcher? With the help of his bulldog, Buster, and Mr. Socrates (the smartest man in the world), Jackie attempts a daring rescue to save his shadow from the Shadow Snatcher, who has sinister plans to conceal his crimes under a cloak of stolen shadows. Using a graphic-novel-inspired style for the artwork, Larry Di Fiori has created an old-fashioned caper perfect for keeping five- to eight-year-olds on the edge of their seats.
