Ultra-snobby Clara Frankofile has everything an 11-year-old girl could want. She's fabulously wealthy, she lives alone in a penthouse apartment with its own roller coaster and bumper cars...and all of New York City is afraid of her! Each night at the fashionable Pish Posh restaurant, she watches the glittery movie actresses, princesses, and celebrities, and decides who is important enough to stay...and who she will kick to the sidewalk in disgrace.
But Clara's tidy little world is suddenly turned upside down when she discovers that a most peculiar mystery is happening in the restaurant, right under her upturned nose. With the help of a whip-smart 12 year-old jewel thief, Clara embarks on a wildly dangerous mission through the streets of New York to solve a 200-hundred-year-old secret.
Crackling with humor, wit and boundless imagination, Pish Posh is a wry commentary on our obssession with all things celebrity and our never-ending rush to grow up.
