First a kidnapped bridegroom and now a flooded school? Looks like a case for Anisha, Accidental Detective!
Scroll down for four fabulous activity sheets inspired by this laugh-out-loud new series for readers aged 7+.
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.
I've been working sooo hard with Milo and Govi to make our super-erupting volcano for the school science fair. I really thought we might win first prize - a trip to the National Space Centre. But now we're in BIG trouble. One minute we were in the lab practising our science demo, and the next thing we knew, our volcano exploded and flooded the corridors. School had to be cancelled! But did we really get our project so wrong - or is someone else trying to win first prize? Looks like a case for Anisha, Accidental Detective!
Do you love science as much as Anisha? Here are four fun experiments to try at home!
Serena Patel and her three children demonstrate how to make gloop and make a home volcano.
