The High-Rise Private Eyes #6: The Case of the Fidgety Fox

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Apr 15, 2003 - Juvenile Fiction - 56 pages

Deep in the heart of a big city ...

Melvin's lucky fluffy dice are missing. Without them, he can't drive his bus. How will his passengers get around town? Who need so much extra luck?

This sounds like a case for the High-Rise Private Eyes -- Case #006, to be exact, the case of the fidgety fox.

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.
