Jane Austen Mug - Places in Regency Bath
(by Sarah Lou Cliff)
I managed to get myself a chest infection and I haven’t got a doctor in Oxford yet because I’m not in the mood to argue about my prescriptions so I had to go crawling back home, I picked up some more books while I was there.
Book Review: Sleuth on Skates by Clémentine Beauvais @ Pretty Books
Armed with a pair of purple rollerskates and a brain with as many connections as there are stars in the universe, eleven-year-old Sesame Seade is more than qualified to be Cambridge’s number one self-made supersleuth. All she needs now is a mission. So when a student ballerina and aspiring journalist vanishes into thin air, some serious sleuthing begins. Very much against her parents’ wishes, but with help from her friends Toby and Gemma and a conspiratorial duck, Sesame slips into the wings and solves the mystery of the missing dancer. Continue to the (spoiler-free) review.
“His life was a book of it’s own writing, one orderly page after another. He would open it every morning and write of his joys and his sorrows, of all that he knew and everything that he hoped for.”
