Princess is not perfect and makes mistakes, but she always learns from her them. Her name, Princess Naughty, is used in the story to describe her unacceptable behavior. It is a cue her mother uses to warn her of this behavior.

Suddenly, the dogs appear to catch a scent of something and dart down a deserted and overgrown road. Princess and Hannah call for them to return, but they keep on running. The girls turn their bikes around and follow the dogs. Finally they reach the end of the road where a large iron gate sets ajar. The dogs continue on inside the gated yard. The girls have to put their bikes aside as they follow on foot chasing the dogs. Soon they are face to face with an old seemingly deserted mansion that looks very scary and possibly haunted. Read as the girls try to solve the mystery of the haunted mansion.
