An idiosyncratic selection of books I found interesting or useful, with a bias towards books on crafts, mystery stories, and books my children like.
Half Moon Investigations
Fletcher Moon is twelve years old but he is no ordinary kid. He is the world’s youngest private detective. He even came top of his class. But everything goes wrong when a classmate at his school asks him to investigate a crime and his prized detective badge is stolen. To top that he is framed for a serious crime which he didn’t commit. Fletcher has to use all his skills to clear his name. I thought this was one of the best books I’ve ever read. I couldn’t put it down. I loved the ingenious plot with its twists and turns and clever clues. The characters seemed alive.
This book would appeal to any one who likes mysteries.
