In case you haven't met me, my name is Courtney Case. I live in Australia. That’s in the Southern Hemisphere between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. We speak English, but we don't have the funny accent you Americans do. We also spell some of our words differently, as you'll probably notice in this book.
I go to primary school, where we have grades prep to six, with two classes at each grade level. I’m in grade five.
In my spare time, I’m a Private Detective. I’ve got my best friend and trusty sidekick, Laura, to take notes, and my cat, Maggie. Together, we form the Courtney Case Detective Agency – No Case Too Small.
Being a Private Detective isn’t always about crime. Things can get lost or go missing by accident. That’s where I’m happy to help out. I love investigating cases, finding the evidence and discovering what really happened.
In this case (my second book), I try to discover what happened to the leg of a dinosaur that was shown at our local museum. I mean, how can something as big as a dinosaur leg not be found?
Join Courtney Case, the fearless young detective as she tries to solve the mystery of the Dinosaur.
