Which invisible culprit has stolen the honey? Obviously a tiny invisible bear!

Meadow goblins, bark trolls, will-o-the-wisps – mythical creatures are disappearing wherever you look! Peggory Jones, agent for magic and mythical creatures, certainly has his hands full. The trail leads him to the village of Kiesbach, where Jannik is already up to his elbows in detective work. Strange instances of honey theft have shaken this peaceful village. There’s nothing for it – Jannik and his two friends Pola and Lulu must investigate. And after Peggory introduces them to the secrets of the world of myth, it also becomes clear that Jannik’s new neighbour, Mr Grauenmeier, is up to something.
Can they solve this tricky magical case together?

  • Exciting, magical, simply adorable
  • First in a humorous magical detective series
  • A skilful combination of children’s everyday lives and the world of magic
  • With numerous charming b/w illustrations by Alexandra Helm
