Read an Excerpt

"Jumpin' Jupiter! We are so completely bored!" cried three little girls named Piper, Pepper and Penelope, who were stuck inside the house on a rainy afternoon.

Little Penelope was wearing her bright red zubaz with her blonde hair made into curly cues all over her head.

Sitting next to her was Piper, the oldest, and she was dressed in her skorts and striped stockings.

Pepper, the knee baby, was wearing her favorite culottes, which accentuated her deep red hair.

Just in the nick of time, Papa Pumpernickelwalked through the door.
"Well kiddos, why don't I send you on a treasure hunt?"

"What is the treasure?" asked Penelope.

"It's a surprise," said Papa, "but I promise you little pixiedoodles, you won't be disappointed."
