This is book number 2 in the A Speed Bump & Slingshot Misadventure series.


After sleeping off his adventure battling the evil Nightcrawlers, Speed Bump joins Slingshot on a quest to earn their Scavenger Hunt badge. Once they complete their last challenge, they'll no longer be Bird Scouts--they'll be Eagle Scouts! But, as is always the case with these two birds, their adventure turns into a misadventure when they end up at a shopping mall--fun by day, scary by night! Trapped inside, what crazy scheme will they come up with to get out?

Here's the much anticipated second book in this fun new chapter book series.
