introducing Precious

Fans of the No. 1 LADIES' DETECTIVE AGENCY will adore this chapter book that introduces readers to Precious Ramotswe. THE GREAT CAKE MYSTERY by Alexander McCall Smith (Anchor Books, a division of Random House, April 2012) introduces Precious as a young school girl who hopes to solve a mystery involving purloined pastries. There are many suspects but little evidence until Precious decides to investigate. Short, easy to read, funny, poignant: there is much here to enjoy. The illustrations by Iain McIntosh are also a lovely addition, providing some break in the text and using colors to suggest mood and tone as well. <70>
