Something suspicious is going on in Cinnamon Grove...
Auntie Urooj, world-famous beetle expert, is lonely and Ramzi and his friend Shaima Stalk think they have the perfect solution - a suitor from Truly Deeply Muslims online marriage agency! But smooth-talking Rasheed is not all he seems. He cheats at Monopoly, for a start...
It's time for the Black Cat Detectives to do some serious sleuthing! But can they rescue Auntie Urooj and her Long-Horned Capricorn Beetle before it's too late?
A funny exciting mystery story from the author of A Hen in the Wardrobe.
'a highly entertaining, funny story' 'what multicultural writing for children should be' 'warm, satisfying and intelligent'
- School Librarian
'Set against a British Muslim background, this is a fast-paced, funny sleuthing adventure, which young readers will find hard to put down. Both accessible and entertaining.'
Entertaining dialogue and plenty of touches of humour make this a good read.
- Parents in Touch
This book is most welcome, not only for its Muslim characters of whom there are far too few in contemporary children’s books set in Britain, but also for the way it promotes values in which learning and academic achievement are highly prized. Most importantly, it is also an entertaining read.
