A special thank you to Prospera Publishing for sending me this book to review.Summary:
The first in a series of eight books, the continuing story of The Littlest Detective in London follows Clementine Cordelia Bird's mission to locate her missing mother. At the same time, a wealthy crime princess from fictitious Slakistan - the evil, designer-clad teenager Natasha Commonov - attempts to free her father from prison. Somehow, the two become inextricably linked - Natasha knows something about Clemmy's mother but refuses to say. And Clemmy manages, often accidentally, to thwart Natasha's nasty plans. Other characters include the food-loving retired spy, Mrs Mackleberry, a paper-folding Japanese policeman, Origami Pete, and a rather unfortunate creature called Ratcat.
I just know my niece will love these books! I know I did! They have a Nancy Drew feeling to them, and they are full of mystery and adventure. A darling book for any age! I can't wait to see what Clemmy's going to get into next.
