Meet Mark (a boy) and Shark (a shark) - they're experts(ish) in detectiving and stuff. When an enormous polar asks for their help with her ice cream business, little do they realize that they'll end up doing more detectiving than they bargained for!

With wild humour and hilarious illustrations, it's non-stop fun from beginning to end.
