Meet RORY BRANAGAN – he eats bad guys for breakfast. Well, not ACTUALLY. But he IS the best detective in town. This is the first in a hilarious illustrated comedy-crime series for kids. Rory plays in the street and can’t quite understand some of the goings-on in the houses around him. When he meets his accomplice Cassady, the pair attempt to discover who is responsible for poisoning Rory’s next door neighbour.
This is a fun and moving comedy-crime series sure to engage readers aged seven and above. There is lots of action and mystery. With lots of pictures and not too many words on each page, readers are rewarded with a really engaging story without having to battle through too many words. Rory and Cassady are a great pair and it’s easy to get caught up in their capers.
This is the first in a great series of books and we are looking forward to The Great Diamond Heist which should be coming out in a few months.
‘I read it COVER to COVER immediately. I absolutely loved it and it put a smile the size of the Grand Canyon on my face. It is so delightful … Ralph’s quizzical, characterful and charming illustrations are the perfect foil to that Clover storytelling magic, full of humour, genuinely thrilling and moving to boot.’
Piers Torday, author of The Last Wild trilogy
