Help Skunk solve the mystery as he asks each of his animal friends, Mouse, Raven, Squirrel, Rabbit, Turtle, Raccoon, Snake, Beaver, and Frog, who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
"Who took the cookies from the cookie jar?" is the repeated question, which is followed by protests from various animals being accused of cookie theft. The bright, cheerful illustrations are set in the American Southwest; a skunk, dressed western style, with a bandana, a vest, and a cowboy hat, plays detective, searching for clues and asking about the cookies.
Directions for playing a game based on the rhyme, plus music for the rhyme, are included at the story. A fun adaptation of the classic playground song.
