girl detective: a friday barnes mystery
story by r.a. spratt
art by phil gosier
this clever, illustrated series centers around precocious friday, who solves a bank robbery and then uses the reward money to send herself to highcrest academy, the most exclusive boarding school in the country. of course while she’s there she discovers that her new home is really a hotbed of crime…
this is one of our favorite series ever! the wry tone keeps kids of all ages (and their adults) amused, which makes it an ideal read aloud when you need to lighten up from harry but still crave some dahl humor.
oh do we ever love this cutie. (plus, we just can resist the glitter on the cover!) the perfect title for your 3-6 year-old girlie girl or miss independent – this is one little vampire whose single-mindedness keeps her from being too sweet.
