MAX AND PINKY have painted the barn a nice, classic shade of red. But the next morning—it’s pink! They paint it again, but the very next day it’s plaid! What is going on?!

Something weird is going on—weird and mysterious! But never fear, adventure-loving readers. The best buds will ask the silliest questions, make the nuttiest alarm system, and get stuck in all sorts of place while searching—whatever it takes to crack the case!

Hmm—doesn’t that gopher look a little suspicious?
