But the city presents challenges, too, in the form of the palace guards' bearskin hats, which drive the children wild-not to mention the abundance of pigeons the Incorrigibles love to hunt. As they explore London, however, they discover more about themselves as clues about the children’s-and Penelope’s-mysterious past crop up in the most unexpected ways… .
