On this day 24th June 1920 I turned fourteen. I plan to have a very exciting future now that I have thrown off the SHACKLES of SCHOOL! A detective is what I would most like to be. I cannot think of any reason why I could not be one. Except perhaps I am too young. And I don't like blood. Nancy Parker has recently been engaged in her first position - as a housemaid for the very modern Mrs Bryce. It's not Nancy's dream job (she'd rather be investigating crimes like they do in her beloved six-penny thrillers) but as Mrs Bryce starts to entertain her new neighbours with lavish parties, it becomes clear that something strange and interesting might be afoot. Local burglaries, a cook with a deep, dark secret - and Mrs Bryce's own glamorous but murky past. Will Nancy solve the mysteries while still keeping on top of her chores? A hilarious and energetic middle-grade mystery, narrated part in the third person and part through Nancy's journal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'One to put under the microscope of your budding Holmes.' * Alex O'Connell, The Times Saturday Review *
Praise for The Dangerous Discoveries of Gully Potchard This colourful Victorian adventure story takes its inspiration from the tradition of classic children's literature . . . in which brave children triumph over unpleasant adults. With a lively cast of characters and an exciting plot, this is a pacy and enjoyable adventure. * Booktrust *
Praise for The Dangerous Discoveries of Gully Potchard Dahl meets Dickens in this rollicking tale * Teach Primary *
'It's a good read, with an authentic background and the chance to work things out for yourself.' * Parents in Touch *
Praise for The Mysterious Misadventures of Clemency Wrigglesworth a magnificent, madcap book - Julia Lee is like an anarchic Frances Hodgson Burnett * Katherine Rundell, author of Rooftoppers. *
Highly entertaining read * Primary Times *
'An entertaining, humorous story with a very likeable heroine' * The School Librarian *
