9780099589358: The Big Six (Vintage Childrens Classics)

'Why shouldn't we be detectives too?'

When Dick and Dorothea arrive in the Norfolk Broads all set for a blissful summer on the river, they find their friends the Death and Glories in a very bad situation. Accused of setting boats adrift, sabotage and theft, the boys are under suspicion by everyone on the river. And in the meantime, the real culprits are still at large. There's no choice but to form a crime-busting team: The Big Six. As the evidence stacks against them, can they solve the mystery and trap the real criminals?

Includes exclusive material: In 'The Backstory' find out about birds, boats and fish and put your own detective skills to the test!

Review:

"Mr Ransome again equals or perhaps excels himself...every boy will vote this detective story super" ( New Statesman)

"In my early teens I read Arthur Ransome's books, The Coot Club and The Big Six... They impressed me so much that I persuaded my father to take me on holiday to the Norfolk Broads where we had great fun teaching ourselves to sail, all on the impetus of Ransome's books" (Aidan Chambers Observer)

"A continuation of Coot Club and as good as ever" ( Observer)

"The adventure, though engrossing, is only part of a book in which the cry and flight of birds, the small of water and tarry ropes, and the jargon of men and boys brought up to use their hands and senses are all delightfully plain to us" ( Times Literary Supplement)

Book Description:

Plunge into the Norfolk Broads as the Ds join up with the Coot Club once again - this time to solve a very baffling crime
