Armed with a pair of purple rollerskates and a brain with as many connections as there are stars in the universe, eleven-year-old Sesame Seade is more than qualified to be Cambridge's number one self-made supersleuth. All she needs now is a mission. So when a student ballerina and aspiring journalist vanishes into thin air, some serious sleuthing begins. Very much against her parents' wishes, but with help from her friends Toby and Gemma and a conspiratorial duck, Sesame slips into the wings and solves the mystery of the missing dancer.
Illustrated throughout with hilarious artwork by Sarah Horne, this series features a smart and sassy heroine with a unique take on life. Also in the series: GARGOYLES GONE AWOL and SCAM ON THE CAM.

Cleverly written, this book is lots of fun... readers will the twists in the story. * Manchester Evening News *
Hilarious. * Primary Times *
A quirky take on the detective genre - and one which will appeal especially to girls. The humour, the language and the descriptions of Cambridge brought the characters and the city to life. * School Librarian *
Sesame Seade is the greatest eleven-year-old detective you could hope to meet. Weird and witty: I loved it. * Marcus Sedgwick *
A charming book with little nuggets of almost absurdist humour amid the quirky oddness... delightful. * Jamie Thomson (author of Dark Lord: The Teenage Years) - The Big Issue *
