Review of How To Be A Great Detective
For the kids. Claudia is a pre-teen with a wild imagination. She endures haughty teachers, know-it-all classmates, and annoying little sister Griselda. But every detective needs a stupid sidekick so after finding a red spot that looks suspiciously like blood, Claudia drags Griselda along a forensic trail around the schoolyard. Will a cola bottle lid lead them to the body? Every teacher is a suspect as a dull school day turns into a thriller. This should appeal to big sisters who are CSI fans.
In a word: cheeky.
