The famous fairy detective agency, Wings & Co, has a problem. Really quite a big problem. Well, a few of them actually.
There’s the missing giant, Billy Buckle, who has vanished without a trace, and left his giant daughter with the detectives. There’s a surprise visit to the seaside, which uncovers a murder and a stolen diamond. And then there’s that tricky business of the TV talent show…
Squat on a squid, this is Emily, Buster and Fidget’s most complicated case yet!
