About the Author

Marian Orlon (1932-1990) worked as a teacher, and then a librarian while pursuing an extremely successful career as a children's writer. His subtle sense of humour and exciting plots made the stories in his Detective Nosegoode series bestsellers in Poland. His books have now been translated into six languages. In 1981 he was given Poland's highest literary honour, the Council of Ministers award, for his life's work.

Jerzy Flisak (1930-2008) was a well-known Polish illustrator and designer of film posters and stage sets. He illustrated more than 70 books over his long career.

Reviews

"The quality of the book's binding, cover, and design are uncommonly good for a paperback, and the high-quality pages show off Flisak's distinctive black-and-white drawings very well. Readers who enjoy the quirky characters and well-constructed mysteries can look forward to two more adventures featuring Detective Nosegoode in the coming months." - Booklist

"Recommended for independent readers who might enjoy this dip into another era, to children who like older stories, such as Lois Lenski's Eleanor Estes' Harriet the Spy, or Chitty Chitty Bang Bang." - Youth Services Book Review

"The classic Polish children's book series... It's all woofily exciting." - The Times, Children's Book of the Week
