Summary Edit

When the school's otter statue goes missing, Principal Hickey calls in Pepper Ann and some of her friends into his office to try to find out who took it. As everyone starts to tell him what they were doing and what happened, the information points towards one suspect - Pepper Ann!


Milo: Whoa, step back, principal man! That otter was my friend, and I didn't steal him!
Trinket: Face it, you don't have a leg to stand on.
Mitch: That is only half true!
Dieter: Sam Scoop here! ...Yes, this is Dieter.
