In Tinytown USA, population 333, a beloved community member goes missing at the worst possible time. That's right—the Brown Family's prize-winning rooster, Rusty, has disappeared just before the big fair, and only three clues are left behind: feathers, a carrot and a page torn from a book. Can the town detective and their trusty assistant crack the case and find Rusty in time for the champ to compete? As they interview suspects and follow leads, the real culprit may just surprise them all.
