    Thanks  :-*

    Leon has solved several more cases, but we can't afford to get them illustrated  :( . I was hoping the Chinese editions might bring in some cash, but that hasn't happened yet  ::)

    FREE 25-27 January

    Selected as one of Bookchat Magazine's 1993 South African Books of the Year.

    When Mrs Canarys eggs mysteriously disappear, a frantic Mr Canary dashes straight off to the Pigeon Valley Police for help. Unfortunately, Sergeant Loerie and Constable Moles hasty attempts to make an arrest lead them to the wrong suspects. Leon Chameleon PI, who has quietly kept an eye on developments, decides it is time to step in and offer his services after all, isnt he the best Private Eye in Pigeon Valley? He puts all his skills to work and finds vital clues which Loerie had overlooked. Now a daring plan is needed to trap the suspects and bring them before Spotted Eagle Owls Court, where Leon springs his final surprise

    Janet Hurst-Nicholson draws on the habits and characteristics of the small creatures living in Pigeon Valley, Durban, to create a thrilling detective story. Barbara McGuires illustrations capture the storys humour, while portraying the animals as they really are.

    A humorous, animal detective story for 7 12 year-olds, and great fun for parents to read to younger children.

    Editorial reviews

    The book is peppered with humour and the courtroom scene is particularly appealing.
    Lindsay Ord , The Daily News.

    Admirably, all the animal details (of food, habits, lifestyle) are true to nature, apart from Mole's dark glasses! Children reading this will absorb much knowledge of our local small wildlife.
    Jay Heale - Bookchat.

    What I like about this book is that all the small creatures involved are part of our South African animal world, and the author has gone to great pains making sure that all details of their lifestyle are correct.
    Jay Heale - Soundbox Radio South Africa.

    While reading this amusing, well-written book you will meet all kinds of interesting animal-people. A good, recommended read.
    Brenda Thomson,The Sunday Tribune.

    Plenty of illustrations add to the appeal of this clever, amusing story and will particularly suit children aged between 8 and 10 years.

    Leon Chameleon PI and the case of the missing canary eggs. Available in PRINT and in CHINESE. Buy a print copy and get a FREE ebook on Amazon.com. 



    Leon Chameleon, super sleuth Private Investigator teams up with bumptious Police Sergeant Loerie (a bird in charge of the flying squad) and bumbling Constable Mole (in charge of underground operations) to combine their natural animal abilities and knowledge of nature to solve the case of the missing canary eggs.

    A humorous, animal detective story for 7-12 year-olds that is both fun and educational (without the children realising  ;)).  Lovely for parents to read to younger children.

    Editorial reviews

    The book is peppered with humour and the courtroom scene is particularly appealing.
    Lindsay Ord , The Daily News.

    Admirably, all the animal details (of food, habits, lifestyle) are true to nature, apart from Mole's dark glasses! Children reading this will absorb much knowledge of our local small wildlife.
    Jay Heale - Bookchat.

    What I like about this book is that all the small creatures involved are part of our South African animal world, and the author has gone to great pains making sure that all details of their lifestyle are correct.
    Jay Heale - Soundbox Radio South Africa.

    While reading this amusing, well-written book you will meet all kinds of interesting animal-people. A good, recommended read.
    Brenda Thomson,The Sunday Tribune.

    Plenty of illustrations add to the appeal of this clever, amusing story and will particularly suit children aged between 8 and 10 years.
    Joy Cameron Dow, Radio South Africa Talking of Books.
