AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Leo and Mimi return to Rondo determined to stay out of trouble and away from their old enemy the Blue Queen. On meeting with their old friends, the two Langlanders discover that much has changed since their last visit. Bertha, the model pig, has become a local celebrity and the slippery Spoiler seems to have vanished. When the Quest team are offered a job in nearby Hobnox to investigate the mysterious disappearance of the Wizard Bing and prove that Simon, Bing's one time apprentice turned giant mushroom, is innocent, Leo and Mimi are quickly caught up in the case. But something sinister is lurking in the skies above Hobnox. The legendary Strix's castle has been sighted a mystical cloud palace where the Strix's victims are forever imprisoned and the Quest team suspect it has something to do with their investigation. Despite their good intentions, Leo and Mimi soon find themselves knee deep in trouble and sinking fast. (Source: LibrariesAustralia)
