Damian Drooth, Supersleuth: Serious Graffiti
Damian Drooth is electrified to hear the Headmaster tell everyone off about graffiti in one of the school toilets. He immediately wants to bring all his powers of detection to bear to find the perpetrator – with his class of willing detective apprentices. What with sorting out a handwriting test, and looking for matching paint, he needs all the help he can get! But even Damian isn’t expecting to be accused of the crime himself! Can this phenomenally lucky and outrageously successful investigator extricate himself, and still catch the criminal? Of course he can!
Barbara says: 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!
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.
