Description

Cream Buns and Crime

Tips, Tricks and Tales from the Detective Society

Robin Stevens

(Penguin)

In Cream Buns and Crime, Daisy and Hazel invite you to discover their untold stories. There are many mysteries in the pages of Hazel’s casebook, from the macabre Case of the Deepdean Vampire, to the baffling Case of the Blue Violet.  Readers also get to read about their very first case: the Case of Lavinia’s Missing Tie.  Not only are these mystery tales included, we are also treated to many of Daisy and Hazel’s own tips, tricks and facts.
Author Robin Stevens has also included some of the history of detective novels, as well as looking at some of the greats of detective writing.  Furthermore, there are some tricky questions to test readers’ detective brains.
This book is a little different from the rest of the hugely popular Murder Most Unladylike series. Daisy teaches you how to  create your own detective society, while Hazel teaches you code making (and breaking). Even society members such as Beanie and Kitty are afforded an opportunity to tell their stories.
This is a companion volume to the main Murder Most Unladylike series, all of which are available in the Bookwagon on-line bookstore.
