Description


Continúan las aventuras de los Preguntones: Rosa Pionera, Ada Magnífica, Pedro Perfecto y Sofía Valdez.

Pedro Perfecto es arquitecto de corazón: cuando no está construyendo casas con su comida, tiene la cabeza en las nubes y sueña con nuevos diseños. Por eso se queda completamente maravillado cuando Bernice, la tía de Ada Magnífica, hereda del magnate heladero Herbert Sherbert una vieja casa llena de habitaciones de todos sus periodos arquitectónicos favoritos, desde la era victoriana hasta el art nouveau.

Sin embargo, algo no está bien… Todos dicen que la casa está embrujada y algunas invaluables antigüedades han desaparecido. Si no logra encontrarlas, la tía Bernice no podrá pagar el mantenimiento de la casa y la demolerán. Pedro necesitará todos sus conocimientos de arquitectura —y la ayuda de sus amigas Ada, Rosa y Sofía— para resolver el misterio y encontrar el tesoro antes de que sea demasiado tarde!

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Iggy Peck is an architect at his very core: When he’s not making houses out of food, his head is up in the clouds, dreaming of design. 

So he’s totally blown away when Ada Twist’s Aunt Bernice inherits an old house from ice-cream mogul Herbert Sherbert that is filled with countless rooms from all his favorite architectural periods. But something’s not quite right . . . Everyone says the house is haunted, and it seems that a number of priceless antiques—which were supposed to help Aunt Bernice pay for the house’s upkeep—have gone missing.

If they can’t find those antiques, Aunt Bernice might lose the house forever. It will take all of Iggy’s knowledge of architecture and the help of the other Questioneers—Rosie Revere, Ada Twist, and Sofia Valdez—to solve the mystery and find the treasure!
