The good people of Pickax are agog with anticipation: Not only is the new bookstore, The Pirate's Chest, about to open, but the Theatre Club is set to perform Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.

Koko seems to suspect otherwise, and Qwill and his clever cats have their work cut out for them.
