Deep in the heart of a big city... Bernard is a bike messenger who blows his red whistle to let people know he's coming through. But his whistle's missing. Where could it be?

This sounds like a case for the High-Rise Private Eyes -- Case #007, to be exact. The Case of the baffled bear.

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.
