Animals are going missing from the zoo! The Animal Police set out to make their enquiries - and the first witness they encounter is the vain peacock Mark (“Who’s the handsomest in the whole park? Yes, of course, it’s me, Mark”). He is one of the few animals who are allowed to roam freely around the zoo, and so is very much in the know. Three animals have already vanished. The prime suspect is the zoo’s new inhabitant: a kind of giant raccoon. The peacock has, of course, seen him. This strange creature can bite through ice, and his eyes are glowing red. He’s super-dangerous! All the animals say so! But who has actually seen any of this? And where is he …?
