  • Max the Detective Cat Collection - 3 Books

    Sarah Todd Taylor

    Product Code: MTDC
    Collection 7 years +
    Hand-picked favourites
    Maximilian is a pampered cat who enjoys the finer things in life. But when a mouse chase goes wrong, he finds himself alone (and scruffy) and hiding out at the Theatre Royal.

    What better way to deal with this new situation than by getting his claws into some crime cases? He'd be purr-fect for this job, after all. He gets his whiskers in a twist as he tries to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of Madame Emerald; investigates ghostly goings-on and talk of a family curse affecting the whole theatre troupe when they perform in Lord Fawley's castle; and looks into the case of disappearing cats in Paris.

    With a feline character inspired by Hercule Poirot and appealing black and white illustrations, these books provide a miaow-some introduction to mystery novels.
