Nine-year-old Pippa Peppercorn loves helping out at the only beauty salon in the quiet town of Crumbly-Under-Edge.
A cosy joint run by the cuddly Mrs Semolina Ribena Fudge, customers and their pets stop by as much for the tea and sympathy as for a trim.
But when rival beautician Trinity Meddler comes to town and sets up shop, Mrs Fudge is in danger of losing her customers.
What's more, Trinity has a sinister plan up her sleeve - involving oodles of poodles!
Luckily Dash the talking dachshund, with a nose for sniffing out a good mystery, is on hand to save the day - with Pippa as his number-one assistant.
