The Matchbox Mysteries : The Detective Agency's Fourth Case


Description

It's Hallowe'en and Podgy Bottom is in trouble. All over town cars are being shrunk to the size of a matchbox in the blink of an eye; a giant purple bunny rabbit is running riot and a strange-looking broomstick is causing chaos and calamity...Sounds like a case for Wings & Co, the famous fairy detective agency! Can Emily, Budget and Fidget put a stop to this magical mischief before it's too late? Another fantastic story for younger readers from Sally Gardner, winner of the COSTA BOOK AWARD 2013, and acclaimed artist, David Roberts. If you loved David Walliams's GANGSTA GRANNY, you'll love these hilarious tales of mischief, mayhem, magic and mystery.

Teachers and pupils will find this valuable yet light hearted collection both enjoyable and stimulating. Climate change is a hot topic but getting people interested in it and explaining it to them is hard. This book makes it interesting. As the author says: This book is about climate change policy, one of the most boring topics in the world. So it also includes stuff about football, which is one of the most interesting subjects in the world. It's written as a series of conversations between Joe, a football-mad Burnley FC fan, and Professor Igor who's obsessed with climate change. Joe thinks worrying about climate change is a The Matchbox Mysteries : The Detective Agency's Fourth Case free download pdf waste of time, and Igor can't understand why 22 grown men would put on shorts and run around after a ball. It's funny, written in the earthy and irreverent language of the football fan. It works as a story, with good cartoon illustrations. But the serious sub-text about climate change also works -- education by stealth. At the back of the book there is a Notes section, summarizing all the serious climate-change material. This lets the reader look up the important messages in the book without having to stand on the terraces. The book has broad appeal: girlfriends who want to improve their football-mad boyfriends, teachers who wish to motivate reluctant students with the football tag, people who just enjoy an unusual read, and of course those interested in the economics and science of climate change. It is unique and a typical book from an independent press -- a zany title that's perfect for Christmas.
