In this gripping third book in the Agatha Bilke series, our jeune fille terrible finds herself back in all kinds of trouble – she launches a plague of frogs’ legs; trashes the Ritz; halts a vicious email virus and shoplifts in the Poulet Vuittonne Luxury Luggage Boutique – all in a bid to bring Holby to his senses. But it’s not easy, with barely a word in French and only a few Euros to rub together… This is number three in the fantastic Agatha Bilke series. The first being The Awful Tale of Agatha Bilke and the second being Operation Ward Ten.

Synopsis

Paris Match: Agatha goes to France by Sian Pattenden

It is summer in Nice and Agatha is on a disastrous French exchange. Her host, Demone Canard is, if anything, a worse girl than she is. A small, spiteful computer hacker, Demone hates Agatha – she puts dog food in with her washing and posts her picture up on the internet claiming that Bilke is a wanted criminal. Making her escape, Agatha soon hooks up with her old friend, Holbeck Folbeck – now apparently running some sort of cult on the Riviera. Enthralled, Agatha joins Holbeck’s crew. But when they head off to “seize” Paris, she realises that Holby is not quite what he seemed.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!
