Look inside this issue
Chapter One: Hide and Seek
Manu is staying at his cousin’s farm for the school holidays. While playing hide and seek in the bush, Manu and Sophie are startled by some strange noises.
Chapter Two: Strange Noises
Sophie realises that the noises came from the walkie-talkie in her backpack. When her mother calls and tells the cousins to come home for lunch, Sophie asks if she called earlier. Her mother says she didn’t – they must have heard someone else talking on another radio.
Chapter Three: Who’s Talking?
Sophie explains that the walkie-talkies only have a small range, so the voices must have come from someone nearby. When they hear the voices again, the cousins decide that they will be super spies and find out who was talking.
Chapter Four: Spy Kits
Back at the house, the cousins put together a spy kit. Then they set out with Possum the sheepdog to try to solve the mystery.
Chapter Five: On the Trail
After searching unsuccessfully for an hour, the cousins become dispirited. Things then take a dramatic turn when Possum senses something in the bushes nearby.
Chapter Six: Tracks
With new friends, Jose and Rosa, the cousins start to follow some unusual footprints. When they hear more weird noises, Possum runs off towards the sounds and the children follow in hot pursuit.
Chapter Seven: WHEEEG!
The children chase Possum and find her crouched in front of a thick patch of gorse. In this final action-packed chapter, they discover the source of the weird noises and solve the mystery.
