Dear Scarlett

(53 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Nosy Crow

Was Scarlett’s dad really a master jewel thief? Was he a spy? A cardboard box full of clues and his old lock-picking set, left for Scarlett to open on her eleventh birthday, might just provide the answers. But Scarlett’s life is rapidly becoming very complicated: if bullies at school and her horrible teacher’s rude remarks about her dad's life of crime weren’t bad enough, it soon becomes clear that there’s someone else who wants to get hold of Scarlett’s box of clues - and they will stop at nothing to get it. 

This entertaining adventure story blends mystery, excitement and danger with humour and fun. Readers will enjoy observing Scarlett's developing friendship with her co-conspirator Ellie, and her changing feelings about her family, as she learns more about her father - and herself.
