Children's LiteratureIn case number seven, private detectives Bunny and Jack have a very unusual case to solve. The tale opens with them playing a game of Slap Jack and they play for pretzels. Bunny who is the brains of the team is also the winner at cards. She gets the pretzels and enjoys eating them while Jack watches. Not able to stand it anymore, Jack races out to get some taffy and returns with it and a bear named Bernard. He is a messenger, but he has lost his whistle, which he uses to alert people that he is racing around on his bike making deliveries. With Bunny and Jack on the case, it is just a matter of time until the culprit is identified and the case solved. In the meantime, there is plenty of humorous banter among all the parties, and a true act of kindness on the part of Bernard when he lends out his whistle. The colorful, breezy illustrations from Karas also convey much of the humor and kids will eagerly await the next case to be solved by the High-Rise Private Eyes. 2004, Greenwillow/HarperCollins, Ages 6 to 8.
