Sita 'Squishy' Taylor is a cheeky, sneaky 11-year-old who lives  in a huge apartment building filled with mysteries.

She's a ninja daredevil, she's always getting into trouble, and she's the bravest of her friends... So she's the perfect person to investigate all the weird stuff going on. Like:

Who's that hiding in the basement?
Why are green jelly snakes the yummiest?
What kind of person comes back from holidays with no luggage?
Why does Squishy's family only have dessert on Saturday nights?
And who has been smuggling illegal diamonds?


Don't worry – whether there's a mysterious runaway in the basement, a shifty diamond smuggler next door, or a sneaky ghost stealing their neighbour's precious Ming vase – Squishy and her 'bonus' sisters are always ready to launch themselves into a new adventure!
