Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3-This new easy-reader series features detectives and best friends Bunny Brown and raccoon Jack Jones. In Monkey, someone has taken a glass monkey figurine from the cash-register counter at the diner where Bunny and Jack eat breakfast. After observing the morning regulars, the clever rabbit comes up with reasons to eliminate most suspects and narrows down the accused to only one, allowing readers to follow her reasoning step by step. In Cat, Bunny is trying to get an acrophobic Jack up to her 21st-floor balcony when they are interrupted by Miss Nancy's scream of "Thief!" Again readers witness the sleuth's deductive reasoning as she quickly comes to the appropriate conclusion. Each case is presented in four chapters that set the scene, describe the circumstances, and offer suspects or clues and a solution. The full-color illustrations, rendered in acrylic, gouache, and pencil, capture the cartoonlike animals' animated expressions and poses, particularly of the two detectives as they engage in their frequent friendly banter. Children will enjoy searching the pages for the reported clues and will surely look forward to future installments.

From Booklist

Reviewed with The Case of the Missing Monkey.

Gr. 1-2. Rylant's newest series for beginning readers, The High-Rise Private Eyes, features two friends, Bunny (a rabbit) and Jack (a raccoon), who employ their professional sleuthing skills in an urban setting populated by dressed animals. In Climbing Cat, Bunny's neighbor needs help finding her stolen binoculars. In Missing Monkey , the owner of a local diner, The Grill Next Door, asks the detective duo to recover a little glass monkey that has disappeared from his lunch counter. Kids will enjoy Bunny and Jack's banter and bickering as much as the mild mysteries. Karas' droll illustrations reflect the innocence and sly humor of the texts. Carolyn Phelan

Sometimes I struggle to get my daughter (8) to read voluntarily. This series was the first she absolutely loved and couldn't get enough of...her enthusiasm spread to other kids in her class...now we can't wait for the next edition!

Format: Paperback
My girls age 7 just read the first two in this series! I was so pleased with the content! I am so sick of Captain Underpants type books! You know everything rude and vulgar( well picking noses and burping)! So, far very enjoyable and slightly challenging for readers who are on level going into 2nd grade.

Whew!

My son enjoys the slightly off-beat humor that goes on when the two main characters interact. The dialogue is funny.
