The Mystery of the Vanished Cat. Balthasar Brown Detective Agency
An exciting detective story, packed with mysterious details and charming heroes that understand a whole lot more than the grown-ups think.
[…] first book in a series that resembles the popular LasseMaja books – with the difference that this book is much better. The plot is stronger as the character portraits are better and the relationships between the characters are more developed.
There are several wonderful characters in the book […] it’s easily read with well written prose. You just want to read on to find out how it will end! Expressive illustrations that sparkles and lifts the reading experience.
5 out of 5 stars, BTJ (Swedish Library Service)
