He belongs to Ottilie and Theodor Dreyfuss, the oldest but best detectives in the world! The two Dreyfusses convince Sammy and Jo to help them in their latest exciting case. A swanky restaurant’s precious recipe book has gone missing; the head chef Madame Alette is frantic with worry because without her book, she can’t cook! Restaurant critics are due to show up any minute to decide if Madame Alette’s restaurant is to be awarded a third prestigious star. Meanwhile, the children’s favourite chip van, Heavenly Chips!, has started selling food like “Grilled pommes de terre avec sauce tomate” at outrageous prices. What on earth is going on? It looks like a case for the all-new Goat Gang!
