Scientist, genius and inventor extraordinaire, Bobby Tromple is proud to announce to the people of St. Werburghs his most prized invention yet: The Moddywomple. A mechanical golden bird which sings the most beautiful song ever sung. The problem is he wound its gears up so tight it flew away and hasn't been seen since! 

Join Bobby Tromple as he sets off on a Coddywomple to find the Moddywomple! 

There'll be a Nobel-Grease Prize for the person who finds his mechanical golden bird.
