A thrilling Murder Most Unladylike mystery, specially written and published for World Book Day 2020.
Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are best friends, schoolgirls – and detectives. And wherever Daisy and Hazel go, a mystery is sure to find them…
On holiday at the seaside, the girls discover a body on the beach. They soon realise this is Antonia Braithwaite: a famous swimmer, nicknamed The Pearl, who was due to compete at the Berlin Olympics next month. It appears she has accidentally drowned in the sea – but it’s odd that this should happen to such a strong swimmer. Even more mysteriously, she smells not of the sea, but of Pears soap. Rushing back to their hotel, Daisy and Hazel discover several suspicious guests who all had reason to murder Antonia . . .
“Another book (small version) from amazing Robin Stevens! Daisy and Hazel are on the seaside holiday with their aunt and uncle. They are excited especially that they are in the same hotel as Antonia Braithwaite — a famous swimmer! On the first day of their arrival they decided to take a walk on the beach – and they discover a dead body of Antonia. Everyone thinks she drowned but girls know there is something not right and try to solve the mystery. I loved this tiny book – I decided to take it to school and show it to my class. It’s really awesome!” (Suzanne aged 10)
