But now a new boy has arrived and he's going to turn the place upside down. The Scarlet Pimpernel is back - but this time he's 14 and at school. His name is Percy Blake and he's not afraid of anyone. Percy soon finds a couple of allies in Michael Patroclus (the Greek) and Minou, a very bright new girl, who is nicknamed the Geek. A mystery develops in the school and the three friends find themselves trying to solve it - but there is one mystery Michael and Minou can't figure out - who is the elusive Pimpernel, who keeps making things happen but is never seen."@en ;
