Purriot and the Headless Woman

The world's greatest vegetable-detective is back! Purriot the master detective cracks cases to the delight of the crime-story fans of all ages, and there are new mysteries constantly popping up. One spring evening, Purriot and Paprika are with Dr Daddlestad on bird-listening trip at the local lake. They hear a grasshopper chirping… and a party-bus full of teenagers… but suddenly they hear a couple of very different sounds – a terrible scream and a big splash. “We have to investigate! Don't you think, Purriot?” says Paprika. At the bottom of the lake, Purriot finds a body – with it's head missing! This could be the worst case Purriot has ever seen. But something doesn't add up…
