Someone is stealing muskrats from Circus's traps. When the Sugar Creek Gang follows Circus's hunting dog, Old Jay, they discover much more than a raccoon trapped in a tree. This Indian Summer adventure includes Halloween pranks, a wild truck ride through an apple orchard, and some genuine fistfights. Everything isn't always as it appears to be on the surface as the Sugar Creek Gang learns that honesty is more than just the best policy... it's the way God commands us to live.
