A simple mystery, designed to hook beginning readers from the very first sentence. In The Case of the hungry stranger, Wizard and his three detective friends track down a blueberry pie thief; the gang makes a return appearance to hunt for Mildred the missing cat in The Case of the cat's meow.

And a younger brother turns the tables on his bossy older brother when he solves the mystery himself in Binky Brothers, detectives.
