Family | Writing | Detective story

Sure, Brina’s younger brother Lovro can be annoying, but his fertile imagination comes in handy when his fourth-grade sister wants to write adventure stories. Yet when the neighbour’s dog, Brina’s namesake, goes missing, the children become real life detectives. Mysterious events unfold, and Brina finds inspiration for her stories in real life.

Following on the heels of his award-winning mountain climbing thriller for teens ≫Zlati Zob≪ (2011), Tadej Golob (b. 1967) offers a very suspenseful story for children with a good dose of fun. The comic-like illustrations by Milanka Fabjančič (b. 1981) quicken the story’s pace and enhance its humour. Many adults will also have fun with this read, recognising themselves in the many family moments that hover between solemn bond and silly little tiff s. (Age: 10+)
