5 Reviews

Rated 0

Sesame Seade Mysteries, Cambridgeshire, For National Curriculum Key Stage 2, Interest age: from c 9 years, Fiction, General fiction (Children's / Teenage), Crime & mystery fiction (Children's / Teenage)

A brand new contemporary mystery series for 9-11 year olds sees the launch of a laugh-out-loud new voice in children's fiction.

Armed with a pair of purple rollerskates and a brain with as many connections as there are stars in the universe, eleven-year-old Sesame Seade is more than qualified to be Cambridge's number one self-made supersleuth. All she needs now is a mission.

So when a student ballerina and aspiring journalist vanishes into thin air, some serious sleuthing begins. Very much against her parents' wishes, but with help from her friends Toby and Gemma and a conspiratorial duck, Sesame slips into the wings and solves the mystery of the missing dancer.

Illustrated throughout with hilarious artwork by Sarah Horne, this series features a smart and sassy heroine with a unique take on life. Also in the series: GARGOYLES GONE AWOL and SCAM ON THE CAM.

Clementine Beauvais

Cl mentine Beauvais was born in Paris in 1989, but decided to cross the Channel at 17 years old to see how things are done on the other side. And she very much liked what she saw, so, since then, she's been living in Cambridge.

As well as studying and writing children's books, Clem is the co-host of the Kid You Not podcast on children's literature.

She still makes funny mistakes in English sometimes, but she's very proud that she doesn't have a comedy French accent.
