Winner of fiction at the Sainsburys Children’s Book Awards, Anisha, the Accidental Detective tells the story of how Anisha becomes an ‘accidental detective’. 

Anisha Mistry is all set to be a bridesmaid at her Aunty Bindi’s wedding – until she finds a note in her family’s letterbox.  Bindi’s groom has been kidnapped and will only be released if the wedding is called off! 

With best friend Milo, a mischievous granny, a runaway lobster, a giant chauffeur, and some super sleuthing skills, it’s up to Anisha to find her uncle and save the big Indian wedding of the year.
