The Fabulous Phartlehorn Affair
Bruno Pockley has a talent for doing prodigious parps. So when he’s sniffed out by a specially-trained Trumpenhund as having world-class phartling potential, all his dreams suddenly start to come true. He and his fellow Phartlers are taken to the court of the Knights Trumplar in the Kingdom of Phartesia, where they’ll learn to play the ancient Phartlehorn for a performance of epic proportions. The starry-eyed children are determined to prove themselves to the magnificent Duke of Phartesia and his beguiling daughter. But when Bruno and his friend Grace stumble upon the sickening truth about the Knights Trumplar, they send shockwaves round Europe, spark an international manhunt – and blow the lid off an explosive political secret!
