Publisher: Bloomsbury

Review

When Oscar-nominated Hollywood star, Betty Massino, comes to perform in the local theatre, Minnie, Piotr and Andrew (who have been friends since the first day of playgroup when Andrew painted them all blue) are thrilled.

But when Betty's priceless diamond necklace is stolen and Piotr's dad is suspected of the theft, they have to join forces with two unlikely allies to solve the crime and flush out the real thief. If they fail, Piotr and his family will be leaving for Poland and never coming back.

With a fast-moving plot and satisfyingly diverse group of young investigators, this humorous whodunit has a contemporary feel and will appeal to a wide range of young readers.
