“There is an old-school charm to this novel, with a touch of witty-humor (at times “bathroom-humor”) that makes for a great read for middle-schoolers.” (Elsa Takaoka, picturestoryebook.com)
AGE RANGE – 8 TO 12 YEARS OLD.
Eighteen year old Lawrence Pinkley is Whitby’s greatest Private Detective. In fact, he’s Whitby’s only Private Detective.
In the first volume of files from his casebook, Pinkley shares three of his comical mysteries with us, accompanied as always by amazing artwork by Dylan Gibson.
The Mystery of the Vanishing Fish – Where Pinkley is called in to investigate a shipment of fish that seems to have impossibly vanished from inside a locked warehouse.
The Case of the Purple Christmas Goose – A dispute between poultry farmers looks set to ruin the Whitby Christmas Fair.
Murder at Figglesworth Hall – Pinkley’s invited to dinner, but the last thing he expects is to investigate a murder in between courses.
“The reader will in one moment be laughing, and then in the next moment will be drawn into the suspense of the story.” (Maria Foley, Book Junkies)
