Poppy Cat TV: Mystery Trail by Lara Jones

Poppy Cat and her friends go on another amazing adventure in this bright, colourful storybook. Dressing up as detectives is great fun, but when one of Owl's books goes missing, Poppy Cat has a real mystery to solve. Where can it be? A purple pine cone, a tree-hugging tortoise and a strange squawking noise lead her and her friends to the truth ...in their very own car! Poppy Cat is a brilliant TV series based on the original books by Lara Jones. It launched in the UK in May 2011. In each episode a little girl called Lara invents extraordinary adventures for her beloved Poppy Cat, then the colourful characters spring to life in stories of friendship and fantasy play.
