Mr and Mrs Bigsby of the Pig and Whistle, Stoke Newingto, already look after 10 children. When Constable O'Drowd brings them an 11th orphan found on the streets, Ma Bigsby is reluctant to take her. But there's something about Elfie, it's the first day of a new century, and Ma loves a mystery. Just why does Elifie possess a little watercolour of the Pig and Whistle? As the mystery unfolds, Elfie's world will change completely.
