Harold's quiet detective skills back up Pigsticks' braggadocio when key items go missing before the big Butterfly Ball.

The Butterfly Ball is tomorrow, and all of Tuptown awaits an exciting day full of cake, games, and amazing butterflies. Everyone has a job to do--even Harold. He's making the Spirit of Tuptown prize! But when the prize statue goes missing, a confident Pigsticks volunteers to solve the case (with the help of Harold's careful note-taking, of course). With more and more things disappearing, and everyone in Tuptown a suspect, who can track down the mysterious thief? Comical illustrations belie a deadpan story in this second charming adventure starring a grandiose pig and his undersung sidekick.

When Harold went to check on his statue the next morning it was gone. Someone stole the statue! Pigsticks thinks of himself as a first-class detective and decides that he will investigate the theft. He invites Harold along to be his assistant and take notes. Pigsticks and Harold find some clues but they are not sure who committed the crime. Harold shows his notes to Pigsticks and as they go through the clues again, they realize who stole the statue.
