The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney

This book starts off with a girl named Janie who is 2 years old at the time and she has four siblings. A person who has issues kidnaps her at the age of 2. Janie didn't get to see her parents for a long time.

Many years later, Janie is in her school cafeteria and she gets a carton of milk with her lunch. She is lactose intolerant. On that day when she got the milk carton, she was stunned when she looked at the face on the milk carton. (In the old days, when people had gone missing, instead of putting pictures on a telephone pole, they put the picture on the milk carton so people can contact them for the missing person.) I imagined that she thought, is that me from the past? Janie is in her teens when she first sees the milk carton.

The author's purpose is to inform the reader about the risk of children getting kidnap by a stranger with "mental problems". The author also wants to persuade parents to always be on guard and watch their children. You should also look at missing posters, especially if you think your parents are acting strangely.

The Face on the Milk Carton by Caroline B. Cooney

The theme of the story is to check milk cartons. If you see a milk carton, check it. If your parents are acting strange, it just may be because you were kidnapped. Janie is looking at herself and wondering what happened to her real parents. Janie is questioning why her picture is on the milk carton, a picture of her from a while back.


Milk Carton: I chose the milk carton because it represents when she looked at the milk carton she saw her face.


Ice Cream Sundae: I chose the ice cream sundae because it was Janie's favorite dessert in the school cafeteria. Even thought she was told she was lactose intolerant, she still enjoyed an ice cream sundae. It doesn't make sense, sort of a mystery, just like her life.
