Bicycle to Treachery

Bicycle to Treachery: A Miss Mallard Mystery. Robert Quackenbush. 1985/2019. Simon & Schuster. 80 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: While on a bicycle tour of Holland, Miss Mallard--the world famous ducktective--took a wrong turn. She became separated from the other cyclists.

Premise/plot: Miss Mallard stumbles--or perhaps I should say cycles--into this mystery quite by accident. She never intended to stay at an inn or meet Julia Pintail. Julia is in danger; she's being followed by ducks in trenchcoats! She lets Miss Mallard know that she has something important to tell her...soon. Miss Mallard later discovers Julia has been ducknapped! She also discovers that Julia slipped her a little black book--written in code. Will Miss Mallard be able to decode the message and save her new friend?

My thoughts: I really LOVE this one. I love, love, love Miss Mallard. The series is just too much fun.
