AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Something strange and mysterious is afoot in Darlingwood, a peculiar precinct in a big city where just about anything goes.

'Citizens are mysteriously disappearing. Of course everyone has their suspicions, but no one is coming forward to solve the case!

'Persuaded by the beautiful fortune-teller Bella de Ball, Inspector Detektif undertakes to expose the villain, following the mysterious disappearances of the Whippet Triplets, Burt and Ivy Brooze and the Leaf Brothers.

'Drawn from classic fairytales with a nod to Roald Dahl, and the madness of Looney Tunes cartoons, "Darlingwood Tales" is set in a wonderful urban neighbourhood of laneways and terrace houses inhabited by deliciously eccentric and wickedly humourous characters.'
