Links for Jug Valley Mysteries BOYS v GIRLS (Book 1) by Anne Digby

So who are the best detectives - the boys or the girls?

This story is set in the town of Jugminster, where twins Tim and Amy Dalladay live in the ramshackle old Knoll House, with their parents and younger brother, Harry.

Tim, has two best friends Ludo and Ben and the children all go to Jug Valley County Junior School. One day the three friends are met at school by Peter Pay, a younger boy who tells them that his bike has been stolen overnight from the bike sheds. The boys decide that they must try and help Peter by discovering who could have stolen it. Of course embarking on such a dangerous venture means that they must create a name for their group, but what should it be? Cleverly, they pick on the name ‘Handles,’ and if you read the story you will discover why this is such a clever name.

Of course when Tim’s sister Amy and her friend Mini discover the ‘Handles’ and what they are going to do, they want to join in. But as you can imagine they are told in no uncertain terms that detective work is a job for boys, not girls. Of course the girls think this is rubbish and are determined to show the boys that they are just as good as they are, and so they set up their own rival club called – guess what?

As the rival groups try to discover clues and set traps, the whole thing becomes more personal as Tim and Amy’s mum’s bike is stolen. Now both sets of friends are even more determined to find the thief!

But if the police have no suspects, how can they do this?

Is the thief someone at school, or an adult?

Where are the bikes being hidden and what will happen to them?

This exciting mystery will have boys and girls alike avidly reading through its pages to discover if the bikes are found, and if they are, who the finders are, the boys or the girls.

Although this is a boys v girls story, throughout it the author has interwoven important life lessons of teamwork, friendship, loyalty, determination and compassion.

Reading it to my grandson, took me back to my childhood, playing with my brother, having dens and great adventures together, however, none were as exciting as this!

About the Book: When a bike is stolen from the school bike sheds at Jug Valley Juniors, Tim forms a secret club with his friends Ben and Ludo to try to solve the crime. They call themselves the Handles. ‘This isn’t girls’ stuff,’ he tells his twin sister Amy. ‘It needs boys to handle it.’
To get back at the boys, Amy and her best friend Mini jokingly call themselves the Spouts…but it’s no longer a joke when Mum’s lovely bike is stolen, too, giving the girls a serious quest of their own. And so the rival detectives go into action – mainly against each other.
Yet they should be working together if they want to avoid danger….
