In The Royal Rabbits of London: The Great Diamond Chase, the biggest, most beautiful diamond in the world is stolen from Buckingham Palace.

Nobody knows how the sneaky thief managed to nab the Siberian Diamond from right under the Queen’s nose – but Shylo and the brave Royal Rabbits of London will do whatever it takes to solve the case, and return the jewel to its rightful place.

It turns out Russia‘s sharp-toothed secret-agent minks are in town, could they have had anything to do with the theft? Or will the Royal Rabbits discover a different culprit?

One thing’s for sure – the rabbits soon realise nothing is quite what it seems, and they might need help from an old friend to solve this mystery.
