The Five Clues is one of eight books shortlisted for the Dudley Children’s Book Award!
Here's some feedback from the judges: I thoroughly enjoyed The Five Clues. Edie is courageous and talented, and shows great resilience and determination in solving clues left by her mum following her death. It is a wonderful, clever and compelling read. It’s also the first book in the Don’t Doubt the Rainbow series, so I can’t wait for the next instalment! A very worthy title on the Dudley Children’s Book Award Shortlist.
