Bugsy Goldwing has Motham City abuzz. The young slugger has a hot bat and his team, the Stinkbugs, have launched a serious assault on the league title. Unfortunately, some dastardly low life has snitched the kid's bat and suddenly he's not able to launch the ball the way he has done before.

With the entire season hanging in the balance, it is up to detective Ace Lacewing to find the missing bat and save the day for the Stinkbugs, who are about to tackle the Leafhoppers in a key contest.

Ace's investigation has him rubbing wings with the likes of Coach Pee Wee Reeks, Fly Cobb, Mickey Mantis, and Big Hoppi - and one of these characters may know what happened to the missing hardwood.

The latest in the Ace Lacewing series, this mystery will have young readers pouring over the pages, looking for clues along with the indomitable buggy sleuth. As usual, there are also plenty of puns and sight gags to keep everyone, including mom and dad, chuckling as they read this entertaining picture book.
