Fowl Play, a Book By You novel, actually offers two mysteries in a single, compelling book! The story begins as the two personalized lead characters witness a blazing fire at an old factory, and are then surprised to spot a mysterious black car abruptly speeding away. When the police investigators discover a break-in at the factory, they're convinced that the fire was set deliberately... and even turn suspicious eyes toward our innocent main characters!
Determined to prove their innocence, the clever young friends turn into detectives themselves, uncovering many clues starting with an engraved wooden box and a stunned rabbit that they rescue from a flood. When a talking parrot adopts the pair, they discover that both the bird and the box belong to a quirky, friendly scientist with a wondrous home filled with seemingly magical inventions and a zoo-full of talented pets.
Just as the mystery of the fire unfolds, our two adventurers are shocked when the chatty parrot is stolen right before their eyes... leading them to a new mystery: where did it go, and why would anyone kidnap a bird?
Our young friends must find out who set the fire: was it the owner of the property himself? A raucous group of local skateboarders? Rival scientists? Someone who wants to build on the factory property? And what's the connection to the missing parrot?
