General Crepe-Sombo is everyone's hero, but Sophie reckons there is something fishy about him. She must do some dangerous spying to find out the truth. It turns out that the General is more crooked than Sophie and Gidaado could ever have imagined. They must expose him before he becomes President! In a final breathtaking scene, the children are racing across the desert sands on camelback, pursued by General Crepe-Sombo in his jeep. Who will prevail?
