Deep in the heart of a big city....
RamÓn's lawn chair has disappeared. It's only a cheap plastic chair, but it's RamÓn's favorite chair, and he wants it back. Who (or what) would take a lawn chair? When (and how) did it disappear?
This sounds like a case for the High-Rise Private Eyes -- Case #005, to be exact, the case of the Sleepy Sloth. Because no mystery is too mysterious, no puzzle too puzzling, no crime too criminal, no trouble too troubling for ace detectives and very best friends Bunny Brown and Jack Jones.

William Dufris's "announcer" voice sets a perfect stage for a beginner's mystery reader. Dufris is a master of inflection, even within the accurate character-driven voices--impatient Bunny; inquisitive, gruff Jack; and Ramon, who has a delightful Spanish accent. The only detraction is the too frequent dialogue attribution, which begin to grate at times, although that might not bother beginning readers. Even though the story itself is short on mystery, the sound effects are excellent, and Dufris's narration elevates the production to an exceptional audiobook for beginning readers.
