There is an emergency back home on Nicky’s family ranch in Australia. The sheep are losing all their wool and no-one knows why. Nicky has to return home to find out what is going on and her friends won’t let her do it alone. So the Thea sisters set out on another adventure.
This journey takes them from the ranch to the secret place of Nicky’s ancestors, where they hope to find the cure to what is making the sheep sick. The trip involves a plane, a train, a car and a boat. Along the way they get invited to an Outback Ball.
The Thea Stilton books, like the Geronimo Stilton books, are a lot of fun. Set in the same format with coloured illustrations and coloured text these books are slightly longer than the Geronimo ones, which makes them a little more of a challenging read.
The characters in these books are five girlfriends from all around the world, who are smart and love solving mysteries. With plenty of text and five wonderfully different characters these books are a popular read with female fans of the original series. Any girls is bound to identify with at least one the the sisters. Highly recommended if you want something with mystery, adventure and no fairies.
