About the Author

Hazel Edwards is a Melbourne based author who writes books and scripts for children and adults. Picture book 'There's a Hippopotamus on our Roof Eating Cake' is her best known title which has been continually in print for 27 years and adapted for stage, radio, video and puppetry as well as widely translated. We have included her in this list because some of her Young Adult fiction has a mysterious bent and it could be a useful introduction for teenagers.

Hazel Edwards now has e-books on her website, initially a couple of junior mystery series which are very easy to read. Previously successful print titles,these have been e-formatted with new illustrtaions and covers by Jane Connory. 'Project Spy Kids features Art, an ace problem solving 10 year old, who's not keen on reading. Helped by India, her giant dog 'Tiny' and Mars Bar, they solve local mysteries like a greyhound scam, zoo poo clues and even a missing wedding hire bird. In the 'Frequent Flyer Twins' series, Asian-Australian 10 year olds, Amy & Christopher solve mysteries at various international airports.
