She’s a smart little vampire. But she’s terrified of everything. Can she summon some courage, or will her class trip be ruined?

But if her fear of boggy water stalls the case, the park will close and her best friend’s dream of going to science camp will be dashed.
With only one day to unscramble the riddle, Ellie tries to ignore her dread of swimming and recruits her pals to help search for the missing jellies. Suspecting everything from pollution to sea monsters, the only clue they find is a furry brown rat dogging their heels.
Can Ellie swallow her fright and rescue the wobbly lost creatures?
