“The adventures of Mariella and his friends which is written and illustrated by Kate Pankhurst is engaging for curious and exploring children aged 8 to 11,” she added.
In the first book we read: “When the teacher of Mariella, Miss Crumble spots the ghost of her pet guinea pig, Mr Darcy, in her back garden, she doesn't know what to think. But Mariella knows it's up to her and her fellow Mystery Girls to get to the bottom of The Case of the Ghostly Guinea Pig.”

In this top-secret journal, she tackles the case of who is trying to sabotage the Puddleford baking contest with important clues and observations, helpful drawings, and handy tips for new detectives”.
