Product Details


“Beauvais makes an uproarious U.S. debut with the story of 11-year-old Sophie “Sesame” Seade . . . Horne’s spot illustrations brim with energy (full of clips, combs, braids, and flyaway curls, Sesame’s hair has a life of its own) and can be as edgy as the narration. A bitingly funny kickoff to the Sesame Seade series.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“The pace is rambunctious; the adults, Dahl-nasty. . . . A generous smattering of spot illustrations featuring bug-eyed characters and grotesqueries of various sorts support the jittery, high-octane humor.”—The Horn Book
“Part Junie B. Jones, part Georgia Nicholson, Sesame is a fun, sassy character. With humorous illustrations and plenty of white space, the book works for both those transitioning into chapter books and strong readers looking for a breezy story.”—Booklist
“An appealing girl detective makes her debut in the first of a mystery series. . . . A likable and diverting British import.”—Kirkus Reviews
