Walker Books, 2009. ISBN 9781406314618.
(Age 9-12) Recommended. An intriguing little 'who done it': well scripted with believable characters. Poppy Fields is the heroine in three similar style novels and with her friend Graham, solves the murders. The clues are cleverly hidden in a 'Punch and Judy' show scenario. Set in California amid a luxurious backdrop of Hollywood glamour, Poppy, Graham and her mother who has been brought to America to make a beautiful English garden, investigate the three murders. It's a good read.
