There is a thief at Penny’s school. Lunch money and phones keep disappearing. Even Ida’s new phone falls victim to the thief when she leaves it in the changing room during PE class. The list of potential suspects is actually quite small: Penny’s brother Tim, who twisted his ankle and had to limp back to the changing room; prissy Ivy from the neighboring class; and the Blutbach daughter. Penny and her detectives are on the case, but all the suspects seem to be innocent. So what should they do now?
