Description

Lately, nothing seemed to be going right for poor, pretty, petite Peggy Pine Warbler. Excited about the fact she would become a mother very, very soon, she still had to come to grips with the prospect of raising her young all by herself. Now, just before the happy arrival of her chicks, she discovers the stash of seeds she and her late husband had gathered just for the occasion is gone! Just like Old Mother Hubbard, her "cupboard is bare," but this is more than just a rhyming nursery rhyme. Without those seeds, how would she keep up her strength while caring for her babies? Help can sometimes come from unexpected places. Judge Owl asks his famous detective friend, Sherlock Hawk, to take the case; to find the thief and hopefully recover some or all of the stolen food supply. Always eager to help a lady in distress, Sherlock takes the case. Follow along as he questions a long list of colorful characters - characters like Carlo "Black Eyes" Cardinal, Tom "Tuffy" Titmouse, Melvin "The Echo" Mockingbird, Hugo Hummingbird, and more - searching for the heartless thief. Case of the Stolen Stash is a fast-paced detective story patterned after the fictional British detective, Sherlock Holmes. Complete with equally well known Dr. Watson, the detective uses logic and intelligence to track down the thief. Will he be successful? And even if he catches the thief, what about the much needed food for Peggy? The answers may surprise you.
