MY REVIEW

Today I want to tell you about the books from the talented, wonderful, very kind author Pip Murphy. I got hooked on the smart new children’s books Christie and Agatha, after reading A Discovery Disappears. Christie and Agatha are young twin sisters that solve mysteries around the world.

I’m extra excited to read the second book in the series, Christie and Agatha Of Mountains And Motors.

Christie and Agatha who live in Torquay, were detectives. Officially. They even had a business card to prove it.

Christie & Agatha business card read ….

———————————————————————

Christie & Agatha

Detective Agency will solve any problem, big or small ( preferably big)

Torquay, England, The World.

————————————————————————

A man named Henry Alexandra Junior is going to drive a motor car up Ben Nevis and they’re planning to use a dynamite to help clear the path up the mountain.

Agatha and Christie and their family take the train on the Flying Scotsman, to Edinburgh, to see Alexander’s Ford Dealership go up the Britain’s tallest mountain, in a record-breaking time.

Christie gets to drive the Ford Model T for Mr Alexander’s Jr, but someone is tampering with the car.

Christie is drawing near to the suspect. And The police at Fort William police station are called upon.

I’m looking forward to book 3 in the Christie and Agatha series, Tombful Of Trouble.
