The Trouble with Goats and Sheep by Joanna Cannon
Mrs Creasy is missing and The Avenue is alive with whispers. As the summer shimmers endlessly on, ten-year-olds Grace and Tilly decide to take matters into their own hands.
And as the cul-de-sac starts giving up its secrets, the amateur detectives will find much more than they imagined…
Mairead Gallagher’s Recommendation
“Joanna Cannon is a fresh new voice in fiction. Her debut novel takes us on a wonderful journey with Grace and Tilly as the two intrepid 10 year olds try to solve the mystery of the disappearance of their neighbour Mrs. Creasy. Through a long hot summer they interview a number of neighbours to help find Mrs. Creasy & in doing so they find out a lot more than they bargained for. A wonder read.”
