Anisha the Accidental Detective
Anisha, Accidental Detective

Anisha is all set to be a (reluctant) bridesmaid at Aunty Bindi’s wedding...until a secret ransom note arrives. Bindi’s groom has been kidnapped and will only be released IF THE WEDDING IS CALLED OFF! With best friend Milo, mischievous Granny Jas, a runaway lobster, a kitten-loving giant, and some super skills of logic and observation, it’s up to Anisha Mistry to find her uncle, before the big family wedding of the year becomes a big disaster.

Discount price not available in France, Italy and Spain due to fixed book price regulations.

“The chaotic warmth of an eccentric extended family underpins this exhilarating romp which touches upon children’s insecurity about change. Anisha and Milo are an engaging team who we are sure to meet again.”

Press reviews

The story surfs along on a wave of excitable prose, while offering insights into Hindu culture that, for the uninitiated, are intriguing.
