    Beatrice Beecham's Fearsome Feast

    Reminded me of the all those great books I read as a chld. I'm thinking, Famous Five, Secret Seven, Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. I can easily see this as a movie. The mystery, adventure and humour more than captivates and there are some great action set-pieces. This is a satisfying alternative to those tired of the current 'wizard and wand' genre in kid's books. I hear this is the first of a series. I'll certainly be buying the second book!!

    Beatrice Beecham's Fearsome Feast

    Beatrice Beecham has managed to bring the traditonal children's adventure/mystery story up to date in an exciting and humorous yarn. Set in the coastal town of Dorsal Finn it charts the adventures of Beatrice Beecham, a 12 year old girl, obsessed with cooking, who moves into the town after her father loses his job. As well as meeting many weird and zany characters Beatrice has to cope with the many traditions particular to Dorsal Finn with hilarious results. But beneath all the humor Dorsal Finn keeps a terrible secret that can only be unveiled if a path is followed. When Beatrice is given a cookbook as a welcome gift she stumbles upon a clue that begins a classic adventure crammed with clues, chases and a villan to give 'He Who Must Not Be Named' a run for his money. The author manages to blend humor and sense of adventure with ease and each plot twist is neither contrived or predictable. This book is a breath of fresh air for any child (or parent for that matter) who is looking for something other than wizards and wands this year.
