"Bess!" eight-year-old Nancy Drew said to her best friend. "The pie-eating contest hasn't started yet!"
"I know," Bess Marvin said. She licked whipped cream off her thumb. "But practice makes perfect. This is just a sample."
George Fayne, Nancy's other best friend, leaned her elbows on the long picnic table inside the tent where the contest was about to take place. George's real name was Georgia. "When aren't you practicing, Bess?" she asked.
Nancy smiled. It was a sunny Monday in late June. School was out for the summer. It was also the first day of the River Heights Carnival. The girls were excited to be there.
The carnival was held every year behind Riverbank Middle School. For a whole week people came to enjoy the games, contests, and yummy food. There was even a piano-playing chicken named Henrietta Von Peck.
The girls had permission to go to the carnival every day. But this year would be extra-special. The girls' favorite singer, Isabelle Santoro, would be singing at the carnival on Thursday.
Isabelle was fifteen years old and lived in River Heights. She had sung on the TV show Mr. Lizard's Funhouse twice and even had her own song on the radio.
NANCY'S LOOKING FOR THE TRICKSTER WHO'S SPOILING ALL THE FUN!
Nancy, Bess, and George are having a blast at the River Heights Carnival, sampling yummy snacks and trying to win prizes. Most of all, the girls can't wait for their favorite local singing star, Isabelle Santoro, to perform. But Isabelle may cancel if she finds out that someone's ruining all the fun with really annoying pranks.
Snooty Brenda Carlton, annoying Orson Wong, and Chloe "Cruncher" Mondesky, the pie-contest queen, all make good suspects. Nancy's clue book is filling up, and she's got to solve this puzzle fast - so the fun, and the show, can go on!
