Pinky Bloom is on the Case!
Pinky Bloom is already Brooklyn's greatest kid detective, and now she's adding "pet sitter" to her list of titles. On top of taking care of her friend Lucy's guinea pig and dealing with her annoying little brother, Ari, she wants to help her dad, who's supposed to blow the shofar at Rosh Hashanah services. But his shofar suddenly won't make a sound! With the High Holidays days away, Pinky has to figure out what's behind the shofar's silence―if she doesn't get sidetracked by a missing pet and the suspicious activities of a pet shop employee.
