The Mystery Tour

N.R. Getic George used to be full of energy but now he feels weak and tired. He cannot stay focused at school and does not feel like playing with his friends. N.R. Getic George needs help solving the mystery of how he lost his energy. This is clearly a case for a group of brilliant detectives to solve.
