Funnier than a custard pie in the face, and better than Brain-training,
the Saxby Smart – Private Detective series is not only a set of really enjoyable, quick-witted books,
but also actually engages the reader to think for themselves.
You get to be the detective and figure things out for yourself.
Or, simply read and enjoy
Each case can be read and enjoyed as a story in its own right, or paused and thought about at specific points for the reader to make their own deductions.
Three for the price of one
Each book contains three seperate case stories – more mysteries to solves, and shorter stories are perfect
for those with shorter attention spans, or reluctant readers.
The level of reading ability and wry humour are absolutely perfect for 8-12 year olds.
Try before you buy

Author Simon Cheshire regularly conducts detective fiction writing classes at schools,
to encourage an interest in writing and to show that it's fun!
