Chet Gecko and his partner Natalie try to find a missing valentine and the winning ticket to a fantastic dessert.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
When my morning began with a lumpy bully, a fire drill, a mysterious stranger, and a cootie attack - all by recess - I knew it would be one of those days. A day when you wish you'd strangled your alarm clock. A day when you wish you'd perfected that fake cough and stayed home sick.

Publisher Description:
Freddie Nostrils is a prairie dog with a passion . . . for dessert. In fact, his sweet tooth rivals Chet Gecko's own. That's why when the winning ticket in the Malted Falcon contest goes missing, Freddie hires Chet and his mockingbird partner, Natalie Attired.

Just what is the Malted Falcon? Only the biggest, most chocolatiest, most gut-busting dessert ever imagined. Duh. But even if Chet finds the stolen ticket . . . will he be able to return it to its rightful owner?
