About the Book
As school closes for the summer, Betty Gordon and her friends prepare to depart for Ocean Park. Shortly before they leave, they meet a strange girl named Sally Cutler, who is riding on a wagon that is pulled by a zebra. Betty and her friends learn that Sally is chasing after two men who stole her father's car. After asking about the zebra, Betty and her friends learn that Sally's father has taken in several members of a failed circus, including the fat lady, bearded lady, skeleton man, and tattooed boy. Betty helps Sally search for the men who stole her father's car, but the men get away.
Soon after Betty and her friends arrive at Ocean Park, they once again encounter Sally. Sally's father has opened a carnival, and the young people promise to attend. Betty is shocked to see an airman who looks just like one of the car thieves, but since she has no proof, nothing can be done.
Betty and Bob keep an eye on the airman and his companion, convinced that they are the car thieves. In time, Betty and Bob get the proof they need, and the men are brought to justice.
