Monica Sullivan. Joey Bear and Yvette, Private Detectives (1982) 42 pp. [tpo]
Joey, a Teddy bear, and his partner Yvette, a doll, are private detectives on the mean streets of San Francisco. One day Timmy comes into their office to ask them to help him find his friend Miranda, who has apparently flown away with a balloon. Joey and Yvette set out to find the missing Miranda and get help from Patsy Ann, who has a special “power” for cases like this. Joey eventually cracks the case and saves the day. The story is illustrated throughout with photographs by Steve Rubenstein, including several shots of Joey and his pals in “action.”
