Montgomery Bonbon: Murder at the Museum

Alasdair Beckett-King

Bonnie Montgomery is a perfectly ordinary girl – until she becomes Montgomery Bonbon, the famous gentleman detective. Together with her Grampa Banks she finds herself at the scene of a mysterious death in a natural history museum and sets out to solve the case ahead of the irritating Inspector Sands. This debut novel is full of warmth and humour. Readers will enjoy the witty word-play, the cast of strange characters and the lively illustrations which feature throughout. It’s great fun and a great way to introduce young readers to the popular mystery/crime genre.
