Friday Barnes: Girl Detective
Reading this first book in the new girl detective series by R.A Spratt (author of the popular Nanny Piggins series), instantly brought back nostalgic memories from my own childhood of reading Nancy Drew and The Famous Five. Friday Barnes is an intelligent eleven-year-old girl who uses her dazzling observational skills to solve a bank robbery. When she decides to use the $50,000 reward money to send herself to the most exclusive boarding school in the country, she discovers that her detective skills are needed once again!
With endearing female characters, challenging vocabulary, plenty of fast-paced adventures and lots of laugh out loud humour, this fun series is sure to inspire a new cohort of super-sleuths! I will be keeping my out out for book #2 which was realeased on the 1st of January.
