Jamie Spy

Puffin Books. Australian, Young Reader. Paperback rrp $12.95

Guest Reviewer Jo Burnell

Finding early readers that are actually interesting can be a huge challenge. Jamie Spy is not only a detective mystery, it’s fun. The adventure begins from Mrs Spy’s first words: ‘Sweet spy cakes! My cookies have all gone.’

No one else seems too keen on finding the culprit, so it’s up to Jamie to solve the mystery. He searches for clues and watches everyone carefully. He even interviews each human member of the Spy family. So many things don’t make sense. Can you guess who the great cookie thief is?

Suspense, humour and a series of happenings will keep young readers turning the pages in anticipation. Well done, Christina. I can’t wait for the next exciting episode myself…
