    That’s just the beginning. I know it is.
    There’s worse coming, Indigo, and you know it.'

    A wildly funny middle-grade adventure, featuring 4 very dangerous sisters, 437 hungry geese, 1 three-legged spider, and 1 villain with 2 odd socks.

Leaping across the rooftops of Blunt, he tries to keep one step ahead of their wicked schemes. To defeat them, Indigo must tangle with 437 hungry geese, an avalanche of toilets, curry farts, vicious eels, and a dangerous villain in odd socks ...
