The Pobblebonk Earth Detective Club is a unique blend of information and hilarious fictional adventures. It is designed to show children that reading and learning can be fun.
The book tells the story of the three somewhat ‘off-beat’ Mathieson children, who forced to move to their granny’s farm, fight off their loneliness and boredom by becoming amateur detectives, launching into a series of bizarre adventures in the process.
Their cases take them deep into the world of animal tracks and scats, native Australian animals including marsupials, frogs, crocodiles, rats and mice, a range of lesser-known animals and the unique character of Australia itself.
The Pobblebonk Earth Detective Club encourages children to develop knowledge and skills through Granny’s famous Breakfast Quizzes and an imaginative range of tasks in the Pobblebonk Detective Activities.
