It is also a great book for British Indian girls who now have a central character in a book, that they can relate to.
Except, Granny Jas has turned up as a surprise chaperone, and she won't stop showing everyone my embarrassing baby photos. And now someone is messing with our habitat project - breaking things and dumping litter on the beach.
Anisha is always on the look out for ways to look after the world and when she enters a competition to look after the beach and things start to go wrong… it’s up to her (and her gang) to solve the puzzle! We are eagerly anticipating the second book; I hope to hear much more from this author in the future. Review left for our 11 year old daughter: No spoilers from me - This book was very funny, I couldn't put it down.
There's sabotage on the school trip, in the seventh hilarious case in the award-winning Anisha, Accidental Detective series! I've since illustrated many titles for a wide variety of publishers and clients including Ladybird, Oxford University Press, Girlguiding, Bear Grylls Ventures, and Usborne. As you can probably guess, I love books and you can often find me making a fool of myself preaching the good gospel of the library to local school children. Fun, quick paced and exciting, children will love racing round with Anisha and her friend Milo as they get into all sorts of scrapes and try to discover who really kidnapped Uncle Tony.
