Detective's Handbook by Colin King


Detective's Handbook by Colin King

This classic Usborne title, loved by decades of children is available once more as a smart spiral bound edition. It is packed with tips, hints and advice on how to be an intrepid, smart-talking, quick-thinking super-sleuth, including how to identify fingerprints and handwriting, how to examine witnesses and find clues. To keep those investigative skills honed, the book contains tests throughout to check what the gumshoe-in-training has learnt, including observation questions and code-cracking quizzes. It is humorously illustrated by Colin King. It is a great gift for any child with a sense of daring, adventure and a thirst for the truth.
