Maisie Hitchins: The Case of the stolen Sixpence

(2 reviews with an average rating of 3 out of 5)

Publisher: Stripes Publishing

Maisie Hitchins longs for a bit of adventure. There's not usually much to be found at home in her grandmother's boarding house. She dreams of following in the footsteps of her hero, the famous detective Gilbert Carrington, and she finally gets her chance when she rescues a puppy in peril. Planning to track down the puppy's cruel former owner, she follows Gilbert Carrington's lead, copying her idol's detective skills to crack the case. But things don't quite go as planned, and Maisie soon finds herself entangled in an odd mystery involving stolen sausages, pilfered halfpennies and a fast-paced bicycle chase…

A delightful story with Maisie, a detective, on a mission to find out who stole the sixpence that landed the butcher's boy in trouble. This is a fast-paced story with lovely Victorian detail, which will appeal to Year 3 readers+ who enjoy both historical and detective stories.
