Sommarskuggan och halloweenbuset The Summer Shadow and the Halloween Prank

Summer Shadow #1

Shadow hunter Angela Dot is about to drive the magical Summer Shadow suit to a safe location, to make sure it will not cause any more trouble. But the shadow chest containing the suit falls off the truck and ends up at a schoolyard, in the middle of their Halloween celebration. The Summer Shadow steals the kids’ candy and freezes the principal and several teachers and students with its shadow slime. Best friends Puck and Sasha are deputized as shadow hunters and tasked with an important mission: to stop and catch the Summer Shadow, and to reveal who is hiding inside the suit.
