Rani Reports

on The Missing Millions

Gabrielle Shewhorak Satish Shewhorak

What do a priceless painting, a minotaur, a lighthouse and a glass eye have in common? They’re all part of a treasure trail set by an eccentric millionaire. For 10-year-old aspiring journalist Rani it couldn’t be more perfect. A chance for adventure and also a shot at getting the perfect scoop for a story competition in the local newspaper. Joining forces with her mischievous Nani who is visiting from Mauritius, she sets out to get to the bottom of the mystery. But solving the clues isn’t so simple…and neither is outwitting rival wannabe journalist Lexi. Can Rani and Nani crack the code and avoid a dangerous nemesis determined to take the prize at any cost?

'It’s a joyful adventure, packed full of twists and clues that young (and old!) detectives will love figuring out. But most of all this book made me miss my nan... Rani and Nani’s wonderful relationship is the beating heart of this book.'


Clare Povey, author of The Bad Brothers series

'Rani Reports on The Missing Millions' is a hugely entertaining breathless romp. We follow intrepid Rani and her gloriously playful Nani as they inventively solve tricky clues and battle their competition. It's a dazzlingly clever, fun and joyful adventure. Looking forward to more of Rani's remarkable reports.' Chris Callaghan, author of The Great Chocoplot


‘News flash! Rani Reports is a total delight! Full of intrigue, humour and heart (and boasting a grandmother from Mauritius who is utterly fabulous).’

Abi Elphinstone, author of The Dreamsnatcher trilogy
