Hodder ISBN 9781444912548

Sesame Seade has reason to be suspicious about the strange goings-on by the river. She is rather half-hearted about being part of a rowing crew herself but she becomes very interested in certain events in the build-up to the Boat Race between Oxford and Cambridge. When the Cambridge crew go down one by one with a mysterious bug it's time for Sesame to get into supersleuth mode. This is a brilliantly written hilarious story peppered with super illustrations. Sesame is a fantastic character and a very smart heroine.
