Linda sighed. It was even worse than she'd imagined. She 'd rather visit the dentist than visit some old person she didn't even know! Her teacher dreamed up this great idea of visiting old people in the community and she was stuck with cranky old Mrs Pugh. However Linda soon becomes fascinated by this independent Welsh woman with rheumatiod athritis, a quick temper and a musty house full of cats and antiques. But when Mrs Pugh has to go back to hospital, mysterious things start happening - her antiques start to disappear. Is someone stealing them? Do they want to get rid of Mrs Pugh? How can Linda find out?
