A beautifully observed middle-grade story from Waterstones-shortlisted author, Ewa Jozefkowicz, about family, friendship, food and self-discovery.

*New home
*New school
*New friends
*New puppy (yay!)

But I didn't think I was going to have to turn into a detective as well!

Sam, Frixos, Tanya, Sausage and I are the Cooking Club Detectives, and we have a mystery to solve. The community centre - my new favourite place - has suddenly been threatened with closure, but by who and why?

We're going to find out!
