Sage Cookson’s Fishy Surprise  by Sally Murphy

New Frontier 58 pages $9.99 Age 7+

The Sage Cookson series are engaging little mysteries for beginning readers of 7 years +. They feature a curious 10 year old girl whose parents are famous cooks on television. They travel around Australia looking for locations to film and Sage somehow always discovers a mystery and has an adventure. This time the case of who dumped a whole pile of rotting fish on a beautiful beach is compounded by the reappearance of a former rival cook. Inevitably Sage gets too involved and finds herself in a predicament but luckily she has her phone and her friend Lucy nearby so all ends happily.  The  large print and pleasing chapter illustrations make this latest offering  good value for emerging readers. It even comes with a recipe at the back of the book. There is also a fun website at sagecookson.com.au which teaches you how to make a chef’s hat.
