“…The Mayor, who was proud of Puddleby’s fame,

in a pompously, plummery voice would proclaim:

Pavlova, pavlova,

there’s nothing so nice –

as Official Town Taster, I’ll judge every slice!’


And patting his belly

he’d look round the crowd,

‘It brings us together,’ he’d say very loud...”


But all is not well in Puddleby Town. On the eve of their Annual Pavlova Bake-Off, the villagers make a shocking discovery. The essential ingredient has been EGGNAPPED! Where have all the eggs gone? What will happen on Bake-Off day? Can the villagers work together to save their eggs?


Follow the clues, and figure out who the Eggnapper is!
