Damian Drooth – Mega Quiz
When Damian spots an advert for a quiz with a very special prize (a weekend in Disneyland Paris) he is determined to win. He gathers together his gang of trainee detectives to save up enough money to enter. Only later does Damian find that the quiz is a money-making scam and he and his mates set out to find the masterminds behind it.
When I was eight or nine, I used to pretend I was a detective, just like Damian. My friend, Liz, and I used to watch people walking down our street and we would write 'clues' in our notebooks. I don't remember catching any criminals!
"Reminiscent of the William books by Richmal Crompton, but aimed at a younger age... extremely funny." --Books for Keeps
"Madcap cartoon-sketch humour." --TES
The kids in my school are lucky. I have bought the series and after reading them all myself, will add them to the library for creasing, tattering and general over-use.
