Missier Ponsjetta u Peter Van der Mark sparixxa. Ħareġ mid-dar u ħadd ma rah iżjed. U hekk f'salt, l-aħwa jsibu ruħhom mingħajr ġenituri, jgħixu fid-dar enormi taz-ziju Alfonso. Hemmhekk, Ponsjetta u ħuha jispiċċaw imġiegħla jnaddfu u jikinsu, u bilkemm jistgħu joħorġu mid-dar. Imma meta Romeo, il-ġardinar, jagħtiha arloġġ misterjuż, Ponsjetta tiskopri li hemm xi ħaġa stramba ħafna għaddejja f'dik id-dar. Intant, ġewwa l-Polonja, iqum ferment kbir għax pittura famuża mad-dinja kollha sparixxiet mis-sala ta' mużew. Anzi mhux sparixxiet, iżda żvujtat … Lura fiż-żmien: fis-seklu ħmistax, iż-żagħżugħa Cecilia Gallerani tippoża għal ritratt quddiem il-pittur Leonardo Da Vinci — hekk żgur li ssaħħar lid-Duka u jiżżewwiġha … Imma x'għandu x'jaqsam dak li ġara sitt mitt sena ilu, ma' Ponsjetta, Peter u l-għajbien ta' missierhom?
Roberta Bajada, or Bobbie – as her friends call her – was born in St Julians and always knew that she wanted to be a) a teacher and b) a writer. Her first masterpiece, in the shape of a tattered copybook full of ink splodges, was written when she was only eight years old and it is still there stashed somewhere in a bottom drawer with comic strips she used to write and send to the Sagħtar children’s magazine. The minute she gets home, Roberta kicks off her shoes and walks around barefoot (the furniture is not always friendly towards her little-toe). She loves sushi, travelling, and cuddling on the sofa with her dog.
