A set of mystery stories narrated by the main character of all the Animal Land stories: Scamper Squirrel.

The Valentine Mystery

Scamper can't bear the teasing he receives from his friends when he finds a valentine letter in his mailbox with pretty handwriting and perfume. The mysterious writer of the letter even starts putting ribbons on his desk in school and on his mailbox. It doesn't seem like any of the girls in school would do such a thing. Sometimes we can live through embarrassing things in this tale of Scamper's.

The Mystery at School

A stranger comes to the Fable Forest school and no one is happy about it. The stranger is a porcupine who is bigger than all but one of the animals at the school and he could accidentally or intentionally hurt someone. Soon, everything from lunches to scarves goes missing and the blame is immediately placed on the new Peter Porcupine. Scamper and his friends investigate in this tale of why it is wrong to steal, and, one could suppose, what happens if you do.

The Fable Forest Flood

Well, it wasn't too bad of a flood, but it caused plenty of chaos, including snakes scaring poor rabbits and homes floating away. (It reminded many of the animals of Noah's flood.) The rain wasn't too bad in itself, until Charley's little brother is found to be missing. An investigation is under way to find the possibly munknapped or drowned Chuckie.

Who Killed Dickie Duck?

Dickie was a bad duck. He hung around wild ducks and acted like a wild duck, though he claimed to be a relative of Danny's. Soon he is found dead, with no physical signs of an attack, with his face flat in the mud. All the suspects really appear to have no real cause for wanting to kill Dickie. Could it have been duckacide?

Mysterious Aliens

Peculiar noises and horrendous thefts are going on in Woodsey Wallow. Everything from food to laundry is being snatched in plain sight and the animals are getting upset. So who is in charge of causing this monkey business?

The Kidnapping of Squeaky Squirrel

Curiosity killed the cat, but it scares poor Squeaky several times. As when Squeaky fell off a cliff in Adventures in Animal Land, Squeaky's curiosity sends him on a car trip in the back of a truck. His family go to his rescue with help from an almost unexpected source.

The Tale of the Haunted House

Scamper doesn't narrate this one, because it is all about Susie's adventure with some of her friends. It is Halloween, and while the good animals of Fable Forest can't wait for the Fall Festival, other animals are hoping for a spook party at Wallingham mansion. Susie gets persuaded to go to the mansion with her friends Mandy and Roberta, twice. What's so wrong about going to the haunted house?

The Mystery of Christmas

Probably the shortest of all the Animal Land stories, it is a tale of one child named Adam who questioned God's existence because his little brother died of cancer. As Scamper and his friends watch, Adam's cousins attempt to help Adam have peace and see the true meaning of Christmas.

As always, the issues of the human race are mentioned. Some people are mentioned having a wild party in which they smoked, listened to rock music, and drank. Dickie Duck also may have had dealings with those who drank and gambled. The animals look down upon these things.
