In another - Miriam with her friend Jack from Canada, who can talk to bears. At the beginning of the book, it seems that the strangest things are happening in this house, which sometimes become dangerous, until gradually everything is clarified, gaining a logical explanation. Oh, and where else is Pija's friend Willem, teacher Katrīna, The Mysterious Box, cookies, thieves and cops, old men and cakes? Sometimes Pija has to solve an unimaginable amount of pesky things, but Dad is overwhelmed with rubbing. But there are other moments. "When Willem arrived, Paul Prjanik prepared his own company food. It consisted of fried potatoes. There was nothing else in it. "The most important thing is good ingredients," he explained and threw at Willem with an earthy potato. Dad wasn't very precise, the potato was past Villem and out the window. After dinner, he played cards for candy - Dad demanded it. He sat at the table, six aces in his pants and shamelessly cheating. When the victory was in his hand, he carefully collected the candy due to him and disappeared into his room.
