Kiki is super excited — a narwhal is visiting Trident City!  Kiki has always wanted to see a narwhal, but they live far away under the ice in the Arctic Circle, so it’s never been possible until now.

Doctor Reef is having a code-breaking contest. Whoever can solve her code will get to meet the narwhal. Kiki doesn’t know anything about codes. All the merkids in her class seem to know a lot, and they all want to win. Kiki’s going to have to learn everything she can about codes — and fast!

But when they finally do meet the narwhal, Kiki and her merbuddies learn that there is a big problem in the ocean…something that could hurt them all. Is there anything they can do to solve this mystery?
