Four Children Zane, Emma, Morgan and Kelsey discover a man, Ludo who is involved in a robbery prowling around one of the children's houses. They set a trap for him and then come to his aid by hiding him in their clubhouse. They take the name ZAN-EM-MOR-KEL (the first letters of each of their names)and form a "secret society" to solve a mystery which involves valuable stolen masks. Kelsey was deaf and communicated by sign language A 6 part series that aired on New Zealand television. Very suspenseful and a highlight of the NZ Kidult Genre.
Mystery and magic from international award winning writer Margaret Mahy
Did You Know?
The scene in which Kelsey finds the gun was re-shot. In the original version she sees the gun, picks it up, emerges from behind a bush pointing it at the others, and mouths "Hands up." This was deemed to be too confrontational, indeed, the fact that she touched the gun at all caused alarm, and there was discussion that she shouldn't go near it. See more
