Detective books for kids and teenagers launching off
Its going to be the school holidays soon and there's a whole gamut of activities available to the kids. Starting this Saturday (16 March 2013), there are two local detective books for kids that will be launched at Kinokuniya Bookstore.

At 2pm, local authors Adan Jimenez and Felicia Low-Jimenez will be launching their new book from the Sherlock Sam series - Sherlock Sam and the Ghostly Moans in Fort Canning. Since solving the mystery behind who stole his Auntie Kim Lian's treasured Peranakan cook book, Singapore's greatest kid detective Sherlock Sam and his trusty robot sidekick Watson are solving his next mystery in one of Singapore's well-loved historical attraction - Fort Canning.

Adan, Felicia and Drewscape, the artist behind the series, will be giving a talk about how they drew inspiration from Fort Canning and they will also be signing books for the children.

Sherlock Sam Book Launch

As part of a great renaissance in local children literature, Maranna Chan is also launching her first book - Triple Nine Sleuths, 4pm at Kinokuniya. Triple Nine is of great significance in Singapore, as it is the emergency number for police services. In the 1990s, it was also the title of a local police drama series that captured the hearts of many.

Triple Nine Sleuths features Colton, his sister Corey and her best friend Stacy. They must find out who killed their Aunt Cordelia as it appears that there is a serial killer at large whose next victim may well be Corey.

Triple Nine Sleuths Book Launch

While Sherlock Sam targets children who are 7 to 12, Triple Nine Sleuths targets the teenagers. These book launches by Epigram Books are highly significant as they are in a different genre from the current children and teenager book culture in vampires that glitter. It is refreshing for a change and children will enjoy meeting these exciting young writers.
