Congratulations! You’ve completed the last clue!
The killer of Mrs. Booker was none other than the Mouse from the classic kids story, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.
Clumsy little Mouse was merely trying to find the perfect cookie recipe and accidently bumped a very thick cookbook off of the highest shelf. He scuttled away in fear, not even knowing the book landed on poor Mrs. Booker's head.
Mrs. Booker is a kindly ghost and has forgiven the careless mouse. She even helped him find a delicious, heavenly cookie recipe. She also finally found her prefect pumpkin spice cake recipe.

What is the story of “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”?
A boy gives a cookie to a mouse. The mouse asks for a glass of milk. He then requests a straw (to drink the milk), a mirror (to avoid a milk mustache), nail scissors (to trim his hair in the mirror), and a broom (to sweep up his hair trimmings). Next he wants to take a nap, have a story read to him, draw a picture, and hang the drawing on the refrigerator. Looking at the refrigerator makes him thirsty, so the mouse asks for a glass of milk. The circle is complete when he wants a cookie to go with it.
