Product description

THE SUNDAY TIMESCHILDREN’S BOOK OF THE WEEK ‘A warm-hearted, involving story about a mystery explored by a group of unlikely friends in a run-down seaside hotel … The feelgood ending is about kindness and seeking help when you need it’ Nicolette Jones Todd and Laurie’s dad is either on top of the world, taking them on fun adventures, or down in the depths and sleeping all the time. In the middle of the night, he bundles them into the car and drives them to the Paradise Hotel. He paints a picture of a luxurious mansion by the sea, but the reality is a rundown dump and the disappointment means Dad takes to his bed. Todd and Laurie have the run of the place, and meet Scout, the daughter of the owner, who tells them about the night many years ago when a famous novelist vanished from her room on the top floor, which was locked from the inside… with clues to crack, a mystery to solve, and Dad to worry about, this holiday is full of twists and turns.

  • A sensitive, empathetic portrayal of having a parent with bipolar
  • Funny, moving and brilliantly plotted – a true page-turner
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel meets Paddington 2!
