Once again, he pleads his case to Mrs LaRue, who’s vacationing in France, but to no avail.

DUM DE DUM DUM…
This is the farm. Peaceful. Full of chickens, horse, sheep, and intrigue. Intrigue? Yes – intrigue. Someone has pilfered a peck of perfectly picked purple peppers. Ducktective Web and his partner Bill are hot on the trail of the pepper pincher, but this could be a hard case to quack. Little Boy Blue has an airtight alibi and Jack Horner won’t talk. Meanwhile, vegetables are vanishing all over the farm.

Through some fast-paced wordplay and quick ducktective work, Web is able to track down the culprit, and seize That Dirty Rat before all the salad-makings are snatched.
