Sesame Seade Mysteries: Sleuth on Skates

Sesame Seade Mysteries: Sleuth on Skates

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.

Right from the start, the reader realises that in Sesame, they have a really unusual, if not unique, heroine. Her unusual approach to life makes for a hilarious read, with some wonderful use of language. Complemented by amusing illustrations, this is an author to look out for.
Primary Times
Sesame Seade is the greatest eleven-year-old detective you could hope to meet. Weird and witty: I loved it.
Marcus Sedgwick
Cleverly written, this book is lots of fun... readers will the twists in the story.
Manchester Evening News
A quirky take on the detective genre - and one which will appeal especially to girls. The humour, the language and the descriptions of Cambridge brought the characters and the city to life.
School Librarian
A charming book with little nuggets of almost absurdist humour amid the quirky oddness... delightful.
Jamie Thomson (author of Dark Lord: The Teenage Years) - The Big Issue
