Worrals Investigates by W. E. Johns was first published in 1950 by Lutterworth Press. It was the 11th and last Worrals novel. As far as is known, there has only ever been one edition in English.

In 1970, French publisher Aredit published a two-part comic strip adaptation of the story entitled Une nouvelle mission and L'île interdite. The two albums were issues 31 and 32 respectively in Aredit's small format comic series for girls Tina.

SynopsisEdit
