The School Pet Who Went Missing

Mya loves solving mysteries! Her latest case is about Malcolm, the school hamster. He’s friendly, smart and…missing! Where did he go?

Malcolm could be anywhere. That’s why Mya needs help finding him. When she asks for backup, her classmates are helpful. The teachers aren’t. Do they know where Malcolm is? If they do, they’re keeping it a secret…

Mya must outsmart the teachers to solve this mystery. It’ll mean taking big risks. Big risks mean big trouble, but it’s worth it if she finds Malcolm. Can she track him down? Or is this a case she can’t solve?
