The A to Z Detective Agency by Ashwin and Zubeida,
Where every mystery comes to rest.”
- A fun (and funny) mystery story for middle-grade readers, with a dash of fantasy thrown in in the form of a Bartimaeus-esque djinni.
- The excerpts from Adventures Among the Djinn (a fictional book within this book) provides for amusing asides as the story unravels.
- The illustrations peppering the text make it even more interesting.
- Some of the situations are a bit unrealistic, like Ashwin’s mother not questioning Zubeida’s presence or checking up with her guardians before taking her out with them; or why no one notices people being turned into trees in broad daylight in a Mumbai street. However, all this is unlikely to bother young readers.
