This delightful new series will be appreciated by mystery lovers and fans of Rebecca Elliot’s “Owl Diaries”. Owl detectives, Wallace and Grace, are busy solving a new mystery that involves a missing cupcake. A cranky chipmunk is upset because someone ate his pink-frosted cupcake and he’s pretty sure that Sal the groundhog did it. The owls look for eyewitnesses and round up several likely suspects. The clues they uncover lead to a surprise ending. The illustrations by Laura Zarrin are colorful and engaging. There is a nice balance between text and illustrations which will be just right for new readers.
