The spirit of giving takes a twisty turn as Andy schemes to give Granny Webb the best present ever—and ends up with a mystery on his hands.

It’s Andy Shane and Granny Webb’s unbirthday, and Andy has thought of just the right gift for Granny Webb: a case to hold her beloved binoculars. The only problem is that Andy has no money. But with the help of his friend Dolores Starbuckle, he comes up with the perfect plan—a barn sale! And sure enough, the determined duo sells enough stuff to afford the binoculars case—but now where are the binoculars? The endearing Andy Shane and his enterprising pal Dolores call on their best detective skills in this witty mystery story. But can they solve the case in time for the unbirthday party?
