Product Details

Praise

“Pure delight—brimming with adventure, mystery and fun. I loved every character, every clue and every page. Now that I know all the answers, I have only one question left: why did this book have to end?” –Rebecca Stead, author of Newbery Award winner When You Reach Me

“Finished it at 5:20 am. Truly refreshing — a tour de force.” –Gregory Maguire, New York Times bestselling author of Wicked

“Mystery lovers, you need to check it out!” –Kristin Cashore, author of the Graceling series

“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

“A remarkable, cool, and likable detective.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Jocelyn keeps readers guessing throughout the book, but the eventual reveal of the perpetrator is believable, carefully clued, and satisfying. A solid dose of tart wit makes it an extra-enjoyable read.” –Horn Book Magazine

“Jocelyn offers young readers a cracking good read.” –Globe and Mail

“There’s a great deal of humour, adventure, excitement, derring-do and midnight scary things.” –CBC

“A delightful mystery . . . Fans of Christie and her famous detective Poirot will revel at the thought of these two joining forces as youngsters, and readers 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

“Perhaps spring’s most sparkling debut.” Toronto Star

“I wouldn’t be surprised if 12-year-old Aggie Morton and Hector Perot capture the hearts of today’s young readers much the way Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys did the kids of my generation.” Montreal Gazette

“A robust, witty tale that will catch the attention of many readers.” –Winnipeg Free Press

“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

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

“[A] delight from start to finish.” –Historical Novel Society

“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
