The Icicle Illuminarium, N.J. Gemmell
Kick, Bert, Scruff and Pin are rejoicing – Dad's been found! But he's ill from his wartime experiences, and he's sent away to recover. Then a hint from the butler sets their hearts racing. Could their mother still be alive too?
The four siblings begin a wild goose chase to search for clues. But it all goes terribly, horribly wrong when they're kidnapped. They're imprisoned in The Icicle Illuminarium – the coldest, loneliest and most falling-down mansion in England.
Luckily, there might be a secret friend or two to be found in this odd place. Can Bucket, their loyal dingo dog, help Uncle Basti to find them – before Lady Adora can set her plans in motion?
