I am trying to create a children's story that explains how a dog is lost and can't find its way back home. After around 6 pages, the dog is found and rescued. I want to insert a "flashback" type of feeling, without a flashback. I was thinking something along the lines of,
Surprisingly, while Max was lost, his owner set up fliers to look for him!
I don't know if this is suitable for a child to understand though. If you have other ideas for me to express this "flashback" in a casual way, please let me know!
