Mystery and Mayhem by The Crime Club
🍌🍌🍌🍌This book was cool bananas.
One challenge: can YOU solve the crimes before the heroes of the stories?
These are twelve brand-new short stories from twelve of the best children's crime writers writing today.
These creepy, hilarious, brain-boggling, heart-pounding mysteries feature daring, brilliant young detectives, and this anthology is a must for fans of crime fiction and detection, especially the Murder Most Unladylike Mysteries, The Roman Mysteries and The Mystery of the Clockwork Sparrow.
12 dastardly crimes have been committed, and you have the chance to solve them, But can you unwind the knot before the story cuts the string?
This was a delight to read- easy to dip into too. I found it hard to unravel the crimes before they were explained- mainly because there were certain clues that weren't revealed before the end. Other than that, I really enjoyed this! It features different categories, villains, and detectives. Our friend, Helen Moss, also wrote a fun, whacky, and intriguing story for this as well. It's called the Pineapple Plot, and is really funny to read aloud.
I recommend this for all who enjoyed Murder Most Unladylike, Adventure island and Taylor and Rose. This book is suitable for 8+, and is perfect as a gift! Evie
