If you're creative, or want to feel like a child again, then this book/creative journal is for you.

With this book, you become a detective and it encourages you to observe the world in a different way. Take it all in rather than look past it. You have to start from the beginning, and don't skip ahead, and sit down with your favourite pens and beverage, then start detecting. You observe, document, draw, create and most importantly, have fun with it.

There are codes to be broken and created, people to watch and suspicion looking items to figure out.

So go, be a detective and unlock your inner child with some creativity!

I was a bit cautious about buying this for a Christmas present for my best friend, but bought it after seeing the good reviews, and i was not disappointed! This is a great book, for people who find themselves bored often, its a good thing to do on holidays or before you go to bed. Fab book and will be buying again for other presents.

I bought this book a year ago as I liked the idea of solving a mystery by examining the world around me, which is what the book promises. I'm not sure what I expected but I don't think this was it. It's sat on my shelf for a year and although I occasionally think "now is the right time to start it", after flicking through a few pages, I think, I can't really be bothered to look for different colours on the ground, research famous sleuths, describe a photo of an old lady, wear a paper moustache, guess what happened to page 6, create a secret den for myself, and so on. I'm a grown woman.

The old adage "don't judge a book by its cover" seems applicable here: the cover and its description led me to think this was a book for creative and curious adults, but after closer inspection of actually buying the book, I think it's ideally suited to children aged 5-10, who like to build dens and have secret clubs. I'll have onto it and i reckon my son will enjoy playing with it in his treehouse in a couple of years, but I don't think it's a book for me, sadly.

Grandaughter loved this brain teaser - each page was interesting and kept her occupied on holiday in Egypt when it was too hot to use pool

I bought this as a gift for a writer friend and she loved it. Classy looking book and very unusual contents. All Keri's books are brilliant.
