The Detective Boy

Ulf Stark, illustrated by Markus Majaluoma

A humorous, clever story where anyone who has ever played the detective will recognise themselves!

Suddenly there are private detectives everywhere in Stureby. But being a detective is not something for little boys or “clumsy clots”, according to Ulf’s brother and his friends. However, Ulf carries on dreaming about detective work and the fame and acclaim that go with it. Nothing is going to stop the smartest detective of them all, Detective Boy, even if he has to carry out the crime himself.

Detective Boy is an entertaining sequel to the critically acclaimed The Boy Who’s Got What It Takes and The Miracle Boy. It is a warm, easy-to-read story. The book is richly illustrated with Markus Majaluoma’s playful, imaginative and slightly crazy pictures, superbly highlighting both the humour and the seriousness in Ulf Stark’s text.
