Praise

“Heartfelt, funny and suspenseful, The Body under the Piano is an excellent beginning to what is sure to be a pleasantly gruesome series.” —Starred Review, Shelf Awareness

“Jocelyn offers an enjoyable entrée to the Queen of Crime and to the genre; the narrative’s arch tone, the girl’s vital grandmother, and the novel’s surfeit of extravagant teas should please.” –Publishers Weekly

“Though mentions of ‘newsies’ and ‘petticoats’ may seem oldfangled, the book’s themes of women’s rights and immigration remain pointedly relevant . . . Aggie Morton can be counted on to reveal the truth — to the delight of middle-grade readers.” –Quill & Quire

“A delightful mystery . . . Fans of Christie and her famous detective Poirot will revel at the thought of these two joining forces as youngsters, and reads unfamiliar with the landmark author will find this an enticement to read more.” –Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Compelling, splendidly surprising murder mystery.” –Booklist

“Skillfully structured and carefully paced for maximum suspense. Highly Recommended.” —CM Reviews

“Jocelyn’s narrative flows smoothly, her prose is crisp, and the charming old English town setting adds intrigue to the story.” –Prairies Book Review

“This book [is] a wonderful way for Christie fans to introduce young readers to this literary hero.” CityParent

“Readers will soon be caught up in the twists and turns of this remarkable novel.” –Resource Links
