Lene and Pip are doing an internship with the English doll maker Mr. Smith when he receives a visit from rat boy Paolo, a living rag doll that can even speak! He comes from Mumford Village, a secret place in which the most fabulous and amazing stuffed creatures live. Paolo has bad news: toad Kalle Panowski, Mumford Village’s mayor and his secretary, hare Rasmus, have gone missing!
A suspenseful and dangerous search leads Lene and Pip to a leisure park. They follow the mayor’s trail between fun rides, a Western town and fairy forest and finally succeed in overpowering the unscrupulous owner of the fun park, who wanted to display the toad and hare as living puppets.
