A charming and entertaining mystery for readers aged 8+

Join Mary-Kate Martin in her mission to investigate a monstrous mystery!

This delightful middle grade novel has all the ingredients of a future classic: a gripping mystery, a quirky lead character and bags of wit, wisdom and originality!


There are those that hunt monsters to harm them and there are those that hunt monsters to help them. Which one are you? Dressed in sparkly red shoes and carrying her strawberry-scented notebook, Mary-Kate accompanies her archaeologist mother to the quiet English countryside to investigate some unusual bones found in an old well. But soon she realises that the village of Woolington is not as peaceful as it seems; the ground trembles beneath them, there are mysterious noises, and the locals are obsessed with a terrifying old legend. Could there be any truth in the myth of the beast who lives in the ancient well? With the help of a new friend, Mary-Kate starts getting to the bottom of this monstrous mystery.

Karen Foxlee was born in Mount Isa, Australia. She trained and worked as a nurse before studying for a degree in creative writing at the University of the Sunshine Coast. She is the author of five books, including the Carnegie Medal-longlisted Lenny's Book of Everything.
