It is summer in Brioche, south of France, and Agatha is on a disastrous French exchange. Her host, Demone Canard is, if anything, a worse girl than she is. She puts dog food in with Agatha’s washing and posts her picture up on the internet claiming she is a wanted criminal.

Making her escape, Agatha soon hooks up with her old friend, Holbeck. Soon the two are in Paris rampaging through the Ritz and causing chaos in the Poulet Vuittonne Luxury Luggage Boutique.

Can a plague of frog’s legs stop the evil Demone? Or is this Agatha’s Waterloo?

“Off-the-wall… highly original, this will appeal to fans of Philip Ardagh and Lemony Snicket.”
