LoveReading View on The Popstar's Wedding

In a nutshell: comic triumphs and mishaps of school boy super-sleuth

Damian Drooth is a crime-buster extraordinaire, an ace detective; at least he is in his own imagination. Despite what his mother says, he’s determined to find crimes to solve and bones up by studying the detectives described in his favourite comic books. Laughs come in the gaps between what really happens, and what Damian thinks is happening while young readers will completely understand his propensity for getting into trouble or causing chaos. There’s something of Horrid Henry or even Just William about Damian and the story, with its Tony Ross illustrations, ends in triumph for our junior super-sleuth – he actually manages to catch a crook - despite his outrageously bad behaviour. Great fun for children to read on their own and for adults to read out loud.  ~ Andrea Reece


The Popstar's Wedding Synopsis

Damian Drooth, the one-of-a-kind detective hero, is back. Criminals beware! A superstar singer, Tiger Lilly, is getting married to a footballer. Who better to guard her fabulous wedding pressents than her number one fan, the genius private eye Damian Drooth? Will Damian's amazing brain power and cunning plans be enough to track down some notorious crooks among the wedding guests and win Tiger Lilly's undying admiration?

Packed with rib-tickling pictures from Tony Ross, this is perfect for newly confident young readers of 6 and up!
