KIRKUS REVIEW

A slight entry in Kellogg's color-coded mini-mystery series. In the park with her dog Homer, Belinda is painting a blue picture and trying to fend off pesty younger cousin Jason, who wants to be read to. Then a big wind upsets her easel, and on picking things up she finds her blue paint missing. Was it stolen by Jason or his playmates Simon or Leu Anne? ""Bloodhound"" Homer, says Belinda, will find the guilty party--but then Homer's blue tongue when he fastens on one of the tykes reveals what really happened to the paint. As there was ""just a little bit left,"" Homer's health presumably won't suffer. Despite some passing visual distraction in the background, there's just not much here.
