It's 6:32 AM and Ducktective Web and his partner, Bill, are working the barnyard shift when the call comes in.  There's been a robbery at the farm. Mrs. Hen's peck of "perfect purple peppers" that she was about to pickle have been pinched!  As if that isn't bad enough, it's discovered  that a load of "luscious leafy lettuce" belonging to the sheep is lost.  So grab your casebooks, detectives, and join the fun as Ducktective Web cracks this case in The Web Files by Margie Palatini.  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003)
