There is a series of strange happenings in a small hotel on a lovely beach, and one of the hotel guests is responsible. Vacationing detective Eleanor Owl is determined to find out who it is. Could it be . . . the hotelkeeper (a turkey who loves his hotel); Foster Pig (a cantankerous porcine fellow); Don Coyote (a dapper gentleman of delicate health); The Squirrel Twins (who appreciate a racket and a good "furry dipping"); Miss Marietta Chicken (a fowl lady, though more serene than most chickens); or the mysterious Cootie family from Puddle Rapids? Beginning readers are sure to have great fun and more than a few laughs sleuthing out the mysterious culprit.
