About this product
- DescriptionTHE EXCITING ILLUSTRATED HUMOROUS DETECTIVE BOOK OF 2014 Eighteen year old Lawrence Pinkley is Whitby's greatest Private Detective. In fact, he's Whitby's only Private Detective. The first and second volumes of Lawrence Pinkley's casebook, compiled in one book. Pinkley shares six of his comical mysteries with us, accompanied as always by amazing artwork by Dylan Gibson The Mystery of the Vanishing Fish - Where Pinkley is called in to investigate a shipment of fish that seems to have impossibly vanished from inside a locked warehouse. The Case of the Purple Christmas Goose - A dispute between poultry farmers looks set to ruin the Whitby Christmas Fair. Murder at Figglesworth Hall - Pinkley's invited to dinner, but the last thing he expects is to investigate a murder in between courses. The White Arrow Assassin - Where Pinkley's curiosity throws him onto a trail of cunning puzzles, can he solve them before the White Arrow Assassin strikes? The Halloween Bandits - Pinkley pursues a masked gang who repeatedly target shops in Whitby. Can he succeed where the local police force have failed? Murder on the Dorient Express - Whilst Pinkley enjoys a spot of sightseeing, a simple trip on a steam train results in the bitter taste of murder and wilful destruction. Also by Tim Flanagan Read the complete Urban Fantasy series, The Moon Stealers: The Moon Stealers and the Quest for the Silver Bough (Book 1) The Moon Stealers and the Queen of the Underworld (Book 2) The Moon Stealers and the Everlasting Night (Book 3) The Moon Stealers and the Children of the Light (Book 4) Review There is an old-school charm to this vel, with a touch of witty-humor (at times bathroom-humor ) that makes for a great read for middle-schoolers. And of course it does t hurt that the illustrations are their own little masterpieces... (Elsa Takaoka, picturestoryebook.com ) Tim Flanagan's new children's book, The Curious Disappearance of Professor Brown is a great read. Even the most reluctant reader will find something in this book that will get them wanting to read. It has mystery, humor, and it's paced perfectly so there aren't any parts that drag.We are passengers on the thrill ride that is this book as the mystery unveils itself. The reader will in one moment be laughing, and then in the next moment will be drawn into the suspense of the story. (Maria Foley, Book Junkies ) A Personal Note from the Author When I was a child I enjoyed looking at the artwork that went with the books I read, especially those that had some hidden information that added an extra layer to the story. And that was something I wanted to recreate with The Curious Disappearance of Professor Brown. Writing can sometimes be a lonely occupation, but teaming up with someone as talented and inspiring as Dylan Gibson, has made this book a complete joy to work on. Dylan's illustrations bring an added dimension to the story that make the characters take on a life all of their own.
- Author BiographyAt some point in Tim's childhood, he was abducted by aliens and sent on a voyage of knowledge and discovery across the universe. Eventually the aliens realised how pointless this was and, as a failed student, he was returned to Earth and left with a family who brought him up as a human bean. But, the persistent memories of new worlds, dragons and other creatures, continued to knock at his frontal lobe, desperately trying to break out. To avoid making a mess and calm his imagination, Tim began writing as a way to communicate with Earthlings. Fuelled by Chilli and Nachos and a bottle of wine, Tim manages to balance a love of loud rock music and fast cars (preferably red!) with emotional chic flicks, smart leather shoes and a well tailored suit. He has successfully infiltrated the humans and hides behind the facade known as a family. He learns from his children, but is regularly told to stop acting like a child by his wife. Naturally shy and unsociable by nature, he is selective of the human company he keeps, preferring to be around old books, bonsai and art. He cries at 'It's a wonderful life' but sulks if fed evil vegetables disguised as Parsnips or Peas. He is bored by mundane conversation, excited by architecture and castles and fuelled by Caramel Latte Macchiato's. Occasionally, he likes to catch up with old acquaintances on Tatooine, Westeros, and Middle Earth, and stare at fantasy and concept art as if it is a window to his childhood adventures. He is always trying to learn lessons from the masters; Mr Charles Darwin and Mr Lionel Ritchie, about life and love. Tim's galactic mission is to translate his brain activity into a language that inspires and entertains you, transports you to different worlds and grants you an audience with the characters you have dreamt about, but never dared to remember. All of this in an attempt to redeem himself with his childhood alien abductors and travel the stars once more.
