Someone is stealing all the trousers in Kentwood and, this time, Whiffy's hapless inventor father, Dr Bruce Newton, has nothing to do with it. Or does he?
Trousers are being daringly snatched in broad daylight, taken apart, and horribly put back together, so that bizarre, two-tone trousers are appearing all over town - sinisterly nailed to the front doors of some of the city's wealthiest socialites.
Who is behind these ghastly garment murders and what does it all mean? Can Whiffy and the other intrepid members of The Agency stop the perpetrator before there isn't a decent pair of slacks left in the whole of Kentwood?
For readers who love Jeff Kinney's Wimpy Kid series, the books of Andy Griffiths and funny detective stories in the vein of The Red Hand Gang, The Five Find Outers, The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, Geronimo Stilton and Encyclopedia Brown comes a new, style-challenged hero, Whiffy Newton!
'A very amusing book. Whiffy Newton would give even Mma Ramotswe a run for her money!' - Alexander McCall Smith, bestselling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency.
