"This super series is lots of fun and a must-read for junior detectives"
Anisha the accidental detective and her friends Milo and Mindy are back in another lively adventure. Their school has been selected to put on a musical as part of a national competition – it will be about Albert Einstein – and it’s Anisha’s year who’ll be performing. Milo and Mindy get star parts, Anisha is happy to work as assistant director helping their lovely, if somewhat superstitious drama teacher Miss Jive. When rehearsals are interrupted by a series of accidents, Miss Jive puts it down to bad luck, but Anisha suspects there’s more to it: could someone be deliberately sabotaging the show? As ever, the story is full of humour with Anisha’s lovely family making frequent appearances and contributing to the fun. The Famous Five would admire Anisha’s detecting skills (and envy her for the wonderful spreads Granny Jas creates), but this is a fresh and thoroughly modern adventure with a wonderfully engaging set of characters. Emma McCann’s black and white illustrations add to the overall liveliness of the telling and this series is a must-read for all young would-be detectives.
