When Charlotte got home that day after lunching with Julian Creel - really, what those kids let her in for - she found the house deserted ... and with a very strange look about it. She walked from the hall to the sitting-room... there was certanly something funny about the house ... something missing? ... She went up to her room to take off her coat - all her pictures had gone! She ran quickly round the house, yes, all gone! What an extraordinary thing!
