Best-selling children’s author Robin Stevens visits ATLP

Students from ATLP’s Arthur Terry, Hill West and Mere Green schools had a pre-Christmas treat when author Robin Stevens visits them to talk about her ‘Murder Most Unladylike series, especially the latest title Mistletoe and Murder’ and supplying them with inspiration for their own reading and writing

‘Murder Most Unladylike’, the first title in the series was the biggest middle-grade debut of 2014, winning the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize (Young Fiction category) and garnering a loyal fan base and huge critical acclaim.  Over 230,000 copies of the first five books have sold so far.

In Mistletoe and Murder, intrepid detectives, Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong are spending the Christmas holidays in snowy Cambridge. Hazel has high hopes of its beautiful libraries and inviting tea-rooms – but there is danger lurking in the dark stairwells of ancient Maudlin College. Two days before Christmas, a brutal accident takes place – but the Detective Society suspect murder. Faced with fierce competition from a rival agency, they must use all their cunning and courage to find the killer (in time for Christmas Day of course!)
