A beautiful couple of kid's ebooks - After tearing through the first, will be sitting down with the second tonight.
From the Blurb:
Astrid has to find the Voice of the Coach in time for the Saturday Grand Final.
Sleuth Astrid is a hi tech, mind-reading chook who rides a Harley, uses a z-com and solves mysteries like finding the footy coach's lost voice. Hazel researched with footy fans and went to a match. Zany illustrations with chapter picture clues by Jane Connory.
Astrid has to find the Voice of the Coach in time for the Saturday Grand Final. Was the Voice captured in the TV 'Footy' studio? Lost down his throat? Was a Voice Coach any use? What about the Speakeasy? or the Voice-over on the TV Footy panel or on Talk-back? And then there's the Bird Wedding of the Year. Carrot was supposed to be the MC (Master of Ceremonies) As usual, Sleuth Astrid the Mind-Reading Chook, solves the problem.
The Astrid Sleuth set is easy to read for any-age boys or girls but with some quirky, challenging ideas. Hidden in each chapter is a clue that will help solve the mystery so early readers can snoop around each illustration.
