About the Book

In Book I of the hysterical Sesame Seade Mystery series, after eleven years, five months, and seventeen days of waiting, Sesame finally has the chance to prove what a brilliant supersleuth she can be!

Sophie Margaret Catriona Seade—aka Sesame—has a penchant for roller skating, sophisticated terminology, and sleuthing. What this sassy brainiac needs is a mystery to solve—and that’s just what she gets when Cambridge University student and aspiring journalist Jenna Jenkins goes missing. With the help of her friends Gemma and Toby, and a strange-looking duck, Sesame has a good chance of cracking the case—as long as she can avoid her meddling mum and dad; her unfortunate teacher, Mr. Halitosis; and scariest of all, the perpetrators of a very serious crime!

With delightful illustrations by Sarah Horne, this is the hilarious story of how an eleven-year-old girl with as many connections in her brain as there are stars in the universe becomes a true sleuth on skates.

Don’t miss Sesame’s next adventure in GARGOYLES GONE AWOL: A Sesame Seade Mystery #2.
