Mini(bot) Reviews: Aggie Morton Mystery Queen – The Body Under The Piano

Coming at you today with a middle-grade mystery that I found mildly mediocre. No, I’m not sure what’s up with that alliteration – just go with it.

Playing catch-up with my 2019 reviews and I wanted to share a few quick thoughts on four great comics/graphic novels I read at the end of last year (and one from the beginning of this year.)

Judging A Book By Its Cover: Still More Middle Grade

This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!)

Book Review: Jolly Foul Play

Jolly Foul Play
By Robin Stevens

My Edition:
Paperback, 347 pages
2018, Simon & Schuster
ISBN: 9781481489102

Daisy and Hazel are back at Deepdean for another term after their adventures on the Orient Express. But the year is shaping up to be unpleasant under the regime of the new Head Girl, Elizabeth Hurst, and her five Prefects. When Elizabeth is found dead after a fireworks display, Daisy and Hazel team up once more to solve the case. School staff believes Elizabeth’s death to be an accident, but the Wells & Wong Detective Society believe otherwise – plenty of girls had a motive to murder Elizabeth, and the girls mean to find out who did it.

The more of these books I read, the more I love this series. I know they’re hitting US shelves a few years behind the UK releases, but I hope this series continues for a long time!
