Emery And Izzy: A Tiny Mystery, written and illustrated by Rita Kano, is a short children’s story full of child-like fun that kids will love. Emery takes her parents through a series of interesting clues to help them guess what Izzy is. They try to determine Izzy’s color, shape, and size but still have no idea what Izzy is. Even the texture of Izzy keeps the little girl’s puzzle a mystery. How will Emery’s family ever figure out the clues and finally work out what Izzy really is? Can they figure it out on their own or will they have to put their heads together? What could Izzy possibly be?

This short children’s story, Emery And Izzy by Rita Kano, is absolutely adorable. I love how the plot is based on a child’s perspective of playing guessing games with their family. The characters are unique and fun as they play with Emery through the mystery of figuring out what Izzy could be. I love how Emery’s questions are asked and answered in words that are easy for kids to pick up on as they learn to read. The bright and colorful illustrations by Kano are cute and lively as they help tell the story of a fun-loving little girl who enjoys keeping her parents guessing. Emery And Izzy will easily hold the attention of young children with the easy to follow plot and pictures. I love how effortlessly Kano played to the hearts and minds of children in Emery And Izzy and I hope to see many more stories like this one in the future.
