Book 3 in Juliet Jacka's addictive new Frankie Potts series for readers ages 6-10.
Meet Frankie Potts, the village of Tring's number-one girl detective. She has flaming red hair, a questioning mind and a very clever dog named Sparkplug. And she is REALLY good at solving mysteries.
Frankie's list of mysteries to solve is getting longer by the day. Firstly, her mum is acting very strangely -she's tired, grumpy and feels sick all the time. And then there's Grandma M, who keeps dropping hints about expanding her troupe of performing greyhounds: Tinkerbell, Titania and Tiramisu.
With her detective sidekick Mac, Frankie travels to Gigglesworth to find out about the mysterious Gideon R.

Kaboom! Things are getting explosive in Frankie's family. She had better start solving ...
