Mr Badger and the Missing Ape (#2)
The second in the delightful series featuring the special events manager of London's Boubles Grand Hotel
Mr Badger wasn't just the Special Event manager at the Boubles Grand Hotel (pronounced Boublay). Because he had been there for so long and knew everyone, as well as just about everything about the hotel, Mr Badger had all sorts of other important responsibilities. Ane one of the most imporant was keeping an eye on Algernon.
For longer than anyone can remember, Algernon has been standing absolutely still in his own special spot at the Boubles Grand Hotel. Everyone is shocked when he disappears. Who would remove a big ape from a glass case in the foyer, and where could they hide him? Can Mr. Badger solve the mystery of the missing ape?
