The tenants of Tally-Ho House have vanished—along with a priceless painting! Have the Lorenzos gone for good? Could the Larkins of Tally-Ho Cottage be to blame? The Five Find-Outers and Dog are soon on the thief's trail...with a little help from Ern.
This is a nice solid read. Everything focuses around the Larkins, who live in a small cottage in the grounds of Tally-Ho. Tally-Ho House is a huge, sprawling place, home to the Lorenzos and their little poodle Poppet. Tally-Ho Cottage, on the other hand, is sort of tucked away at the bottom of the garden and is home to the scruffy caretakers, Mr and Mrs Larkin. When a priceless painting is stolen from a famous gallery and the Lorenzos disappear, leaving their little poddle behind with the Larkins, the police are on the lookout—and so are on the Five Find-Outers, with a little help from Ern Goon!
