Fun illustrated mystery for younger readers aged 5+
Budding super sleuths will be gripped by The Case of the Runaway Brain by Nick Sheridan, plus an accompanying activity pack which we created for Parrot Street Book Club subscribers in March 2023.
“Sausage dogs, fake news and a gripping mystery - this book has it all! Plus it's brilliantly illustrated and has an important message about true friendship. Perfect for newly independent readers.”
About the book
Riz, Olly and Drew don't have much in common, but they do know how to sniff out a good story. When they witness a strange sight at Madame Strang's Academy for Incredibly Irritating Children, they must use their skills of detection to unravel the mystery. Can this band of unlikely friends solve the case, or will Madame Strang and her sausage dog sidekick have other plans ... ones that involve brainwashing the town of Snoops Bay?
