It's the night of the Small Hall Ball, and everyone in the Small family is getting ready for one of the BIGGEST parties of the year. Everyone, that is, except for Paul and Sally Small, who are too young to join in the fun. But when Paul's tiny teddy bear goes missing, he and Sally have no choice but to sneak into the festivities, and nothing--not secret doors, spooky passageways, or even a swinging chandelier--will stop the smallest of the Smalls from finding Paul's furry little friend.

In this "deliciously satisfying romp" (Booklist), young Paul and Sally Small embark on a mission to rescue their teddy bear after he falls from their vantage point on a balcony - all without being seen by the guests of the posh ball being held at Small Hall. Set in an elaborate mansion the likes of which few children will ever experience (except in stories like this one) and filled with bannister-sliding, chandelier-swinging action and lots of close calls, the siblings' adventure is exciting and also exudes a certain old-fashioned charm.
