When Lizzie moves into their family, Esmie is happy to welcome her as her new mum since her own had died when she was a baby. But, things don't seem to be quite that simple. There's some mystery that Esmie needs to get to the bottom of. And that is just what she does in this funny and touching family story. From the same author as More Magical Fairy Fun, Fairy Secrets, Fairy Gold, and Cosmo and The Magic Sneeze.

Synopsis

Mum Mystery by Gwyneth Rees

Esmie has always longed for a new mum, since her real mother died when she was a baby. So when Lizzie moves in, Esmie is delighted. Surely it can only be a matter of time before Dad proposes and Lizzie becomes an official mum. So why does Matty, Esmie's brother, suddenly have cold feet about the whole thing? But Esmie has even more pressing problems: like the discovery of her mother's old jewellery box that leads to a mystery about her past. And then there's Esmie's friendship with a new girl in the street who claims to have psychic powers...Esmie has always loved mysteries -- but never before have her detective skills been so thoroughly put to the test!

About the Author

Gwyneth Rees

Gwyneth Rees was born in Leicester in 1968, and moved to Glasgow at the age of six. She studied medicine at Glasgow University and qualified as a doctor in 1990. She now works as a child and adolescent consultant psychiatrist and has lived and worked in various places, including Birmingham and London.

Gwyneth's interest in writing has been constant since her childhood when she was an avid reader of Enid Blyton and wrote her first "book" in an exercise jotter at the age of ten. (It featured four children trying to solve a mystery about sheep rustlers on the Isle of Skye!) As a medical student she went on writing workshops during the holidays, which fuelled her desire to be published.
