This September we’re delighted to be publishing Max the Detective Cat: The Phantom Portrait, written by Sarah Todd Taylor and illustrated by Nicola Kinnear – the hugely exciting second instalment in the Max the Detective Cat middle-grade mystery series.
And today you can take a first look inside the new book!
Max is ready to solve another case! The entire theatre company have travelled to Lord Fawley’s castle to put on a show for his daughter’s Halloween birthday ball! Rehearsals start well, but soon some ghostly goings-on and talk of a family curse have the actors in a panic. Never fear – Max the detective cat is on the case, and his whiskers are prickling with suspicion that these strange events have more to do with jewels than ghouls…
Filled with plenty of fun and drama, and with a vintage crime feel, this beautifully-written and illustrated series is fantastic fun – Hercule Poirot in feline form!
