Strange things are happening to the kids in Mima’s neighbourhood.  Blue mouths, webbed feet, clucking like a chicken.  Some are disappearing altogether.  The grown ups  are stumped, as grown ups often are.  But the clues are there for anyone willing to look hard enough. And Mima and her friends are on the case.

For readers aged 8-12 who love books like Andy Shepherd's 'The Boy Who Grew Dragons', Pamela Butchart's 'Baby Alien' series and anyone who enjoys a good giggle mixed with a mystery to solve.
