A two book series of easy reading stories featuring Sleuth Astrid, a hi-tech, mind-reading chook who rides a Harley, plays e-games and finds lost things. Illustrated and formatted (with visual clues) by Jane Connory, this e-version of the original popular print book includes a new story 'The Lost Voice of the Grand Final'

In Book 1, The Mind Reading Chook, the Magician has lost his sense of humour. Astrid must find that before the 3pm show.

In Book 2, The Lost Voice of the Grand Final, Astrid has to find the Voice of the Coach in time for the Saturday Grand Final. Was the Voice captured in the TV 'Footy' studio? Lost down his throat? Was a Voice Coach any use? What about the Speakeasy? or the Voice-over on the TV Footy panel or on Talk-back? And then there's the Bird Wedding of the Year. Carrot was supposed to be the MC (Master of Ceremonies) As usual, Sleuth Astrid the Mind-Reading Chook, solves the problem. 

The Astrid Sleuth set is easy to read for any-age boys or girls but with some quirky, challenging ideas. Hidden in each chapter is a clue that will help solve the mystery so early readers can snoop around each illustration
