Sophie Johnson Detective Genius


Sophie Johnson Detective Genius’ is unimpressed by Bella, her assistant. She wants to play games. She barks. Worst of all, she does not possess Sophie Johnson’s detective flair. Sophie has worked hard to be a detective. She’s read and searched for clues. What can Bella bring to the party when there is a Very Important Case?

Morag Hood’s picture books are always imaginative, wry and layered with wit and meaning. ‘Sophie Johnson Detective Genius’, is a very satisfying sequel to Sophie Johnson Unicorn Expert. Once again, our heroine claims skills about which we are suspicious. Once again, she misses what is ‘right under her nose.’ There are so many laughs, so much to spot and enjoy. Ella Okstad’s pictures are rich with the story. We are delighted to recommend ‘Sophie Johnson Detective Genius’– what a tail/ tale!
