This book makes a connection to Missing May, also by Cynthia Rylant, when Jack and Bunny are doing a jigsaw puzzle of brown pyramids in a brown desert. Fun!

Another fun mystery in the High-Rise Private Eyes series. We've read all of the books in this series now and they are fun, silly, and great for beginning readers. Our youngest especially enjoyed listening to this book read aloud by William Dufris on a CD while we were riding in the car following along with a paperback book with ISBN 0060534532 / ISBN13 9780060534530. We got this from our library as a book and CD kit.
