is too mysterious,

Cynthia Rylant was awarded a Newbery Medal for her novel Missing May and a Newbery Honor for A Fine White Dust. She is the author of several popular series for the beginning reader, including the "Henry and Mudge" books. Cynthia Rylant lives with her family in Washington State.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3–Bunny Brown and her raccoon sidekick, Jack Jones, solve another mystery. Bernard, a bear, has lost his whistle in the park and the detectives return to the scene of the crime to look for clues. As they search, Bunny makes jokes about Jack's name (referring to a game of Slap Jack and saying, "Just be nimble, Jack"), and Jack is busy smelling spring, so it doesn't look like they are off to a good start. Before long, however, they hear the sound of the whistle and discover that a robin with laryngitis had borrowed it to fill in for his voice. Rylant keeps her audience interested with her witty humor and lovable characters. This book combines the accessible charm of her "Henry and Mudge" series (S & S) with the detective work of Marjorie Weinman Sharmat's Nate the Great (Delacorte). Done in acrylic, gouache, and pencil, the colorful artwork depicts the action and highlights the humor of the text. With sophisticated vocabulary and clever banter, this book will be a top pick for more confident readers.–Bethany L. W. Hankinson, Miller Elementary School, Newark, OH
