The Case of the Sleepy Sloth

The Case of the Sleepy Sloth. (The High Rise Private Eyes #5) Cynthia Rylant. Illustrated by G. Brian Karas. 2002. 48 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Bunny and Jack liked to picnic with pizza. Jack brought the pizza, Bunny brought the pop, and they went to the docks downtown. "Now don't give the seagulls any pizza," said Bunny. "They'll just linger." "But they always look so hungry," said Jack. "That's because they are always hungry," said Bunny.

Premise/plot: While at the docks, these two private eyes stumble onto a new case. Ramon (a dog) has lost his one and only lawn chair from his houseboat. Can Bunny and Jack help him find it?

My thoughts: I like this one. I do. I enjoy the banter between Jack and Bunny.
