Strange women on the loose! The mystery of the vanished mothers - Nothing could be more obvious: Emily, Bruno and Sofia definitely have the worst mothers in the world.

The three enter a competition on the Terrible Mothers website and suddenly, miraculously, their mothers disappear and are replaced by friendly women who can read the children’s every wish from their lips. But there’s something not quite right about these substitute mothers.… An original, humorous suspense-packed detective story – that expresses just what children feel!
