|Haha I thought someone stole it, and when I saw the hint I was thinking "Hmm, then what?" Then I saw the answer, and I was thinking "Ohhh that makes sense" :oops:
Good teaser, anyhow. :wink:|

|If I had a dime for every time this happened with our kids in real life.... Haha! So this one was easy. :P|

|I think that you should change it a little; It read:"Okay, Chris. I want you to tell me what happened." Chris, the 8 year old boy, whined and ran to his mom. "Chris, honey, tell your uncle John what happened." Chris nodded and skipped back to John. Why would he whine and run back to his mom? 8-year-olds have grown up more than that by then, and then mother told him that he SHOULD go talk to the doctor, and he did. If he whined and ran back to his mom the first time, why would he immediately obey from there on out? Shouldn't he yell "nooooooo" or something? Usually eight year olds aren't that obedient! And then it reads: At the end of the school day, I grabbed my jacket, scarf, and hat, forgetting that I put my mittens in there. He STATES that he forgot that he put his mittens in his hat! He ALREADY knew where the mittens were! In his hat! HE said that! There is many things wrong with this mystery!|

|Illusionist, you found the illusion. That really did give it away.|

|Illusionist, it means he forgot he put his mittens in the cubby!
Also, he sticks to his mom alot-- I have brothers and I know how 8 year olds can be. This 8 year old in the park I once saw cried when talking to his grandfather and talked to him when his mom & dad told him to, so you see things differently, ok?|

|I kind of agree with Illusionist.
1. It was somewhat hard to read with the paragraphing.
2. I did catch the other thing, but it's all right.
Have a nice day!

|At the beginning of the mystery, it introduces the detective as John G. Albergail and as the story progresses, his name becomes Abergail. A small typo that I could not ignore.|

|Hah, sorry! Accidental typo... I wonder how the editors didn't notice.|

|So did he put his mittens on top like he said at first, or inside the hat like he said later? I agree with illusionist although I did get it right!|

|i agree with illusionist about how he put them on TOP of his hat then it said he actually put them IN his hat :|

|Illusionist I totally agree the boy said he put his mittens in his hat but if you were reading it quickly through you might not of noticed what the boy said|

|When he said "forgetting that I put them in there," he was referring to "there" as his cubby, not his hat!!|

|Nice, I read a few level one stories that were really just too easy. This was right on the verge of easy, and i got the answer without even thinking someone stole them, because I have been in this situation SO many times before.|

|I do feel this puzzling to less be a mystery than a game of guessing.|
