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.
Max the Detective Cat gets his whiskers in a twist as he tries to discover the truth behind the disappearance of famous singer Madame Emerald.

This is the purr-fect chapter book for children interested in mysteries.
Max is ready to solve another case! The entire theatre company have travelled to Lord Fawley's castle to put on a show for his daughter's Halloween birthday ball! Rehearsals start well, but soon some ghostly goings-on and talk of a family curse have the actors in a panic. Never fear - Max the detective cat is on the case, and his whiskers are prickling with suspicion that these strange events have more to do with jewels than ghouls...
