Next month we’re thrilled to be publishing Max the Detective Cat: The Disappearing Diva, written by Sarah Todd Taylor and illustrated by Nicola Kinnear – the first book in a new middle-grade mystery series with plenty of fun and drama and a vintage crime feel.
And today you can take a first look inside the book!
Max is a pampered cat, used to the finer things in life, until a fun mouse chase goes badly wrong and he finds himself scruffy and alone and hiding out at the Theatre Royal. It’s here that Max takes on his first case as a detective cat, when he notices that famous singer Madame Emerald is acting strangely. Why is her maid so terrified? And what kind of singer doesn’t like to sing in public? Soon Max is trapped in a complicated web of crime, dashing round dancers’ legs and over the rooftops of London in a race to catch a clever thief…
Beautifully written and highly illustrated throughout, this is perfect 7-9 fiction. And here’s a look inside the book:
Max the Detective Cat: The Disappearing Diva will be in shops in March – you can find out more about the book here.
