Crime-Sniffers: the blue rabbit
Age Range: 8+
Word count: 27,000
Genre: Detective comedy
A nine-year-old girl discovers she can see smells. Using this talent, she teams up with a hapless local detective to find her missing pet, but ends up solving a jewellery robbery.
In addition to the mystery being solved, the book has a pervading message that it’s okay to be yourself, even if that means being different. Other themes woven through the story include family relationships, diversity and problem solving.
It is a standalone story, but I have other novels planned with the same characters to follow this one.
