From Frank Woodley, much-loved comedian, storyteller and talented artist, comes a hilarious series about an inquisitive young girl, a cheeky currawong bird and a bumbling detective. Unfortunately, when you're the personal assistant to Kizmet Papanicillo 'rest' is a word you only hear in sentences like 'You get the littlest burglar, I'll take care of the rest. Kizmet, Gretchen and Detective Spencer are called to investigate serious claims of livestock being attacked by a creature in the bush ...and the possibile sighting of a Tasmanian tiger. But Tassie tigers are extinct, aren't they? Can Kizmet use her skills for inquiry to get to the bottom of this mystery?
