9780060534523: High-Rise Private Eyes #8: The Case of the Desperate Duck (The High-Rise Private Eyes)

Deep in the heart of a big city...

All of Mabel's sugar cubes have disappeared. And when you run Mabel's fancy Tea Room, missing sugar is a disaster! Who would pocket sugar cubes? And why? Someone with a sweet tooth? Or is there another reason?

This sounds like a case for the High-Rise Private Eyes -- Case #008, to be exact,

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.

About the Author:

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–In case number 008 in the series, detectives Bunny Brown (a rabbit) and Jack Jones (a raccoon) are having high tea when a scream from the serving counter alerts them that the proprietor of Mabel's Tea Room (a duck) is missing her extra box of sugar cubes. Bunny whips out her notepad and begins the investigation. With a somewhat sophisticated sense of humor, Rylant once again produces a vocabulary-building story that is well illustrated with Karas's colorful acrylic, gouache, and pencil art. The pictures contribute to the humor of the setting and reinforce the personalities of the characters. Overall, this is an excellent recommendation for emergent as well as confident readers.–Laurel L. Iakovakis, Douglas County Libraries, Castle Rock, CO
