Robbie and his brother Jim find an old car up at Grange Farm. It's abandoned during the week, so soon they are regular joyriders. It's great fun, but then they are witnesses to what definitely looks like criminal activity. They are faced with a dilemma: should they report what they have found and reveal their joyriding, or keep quiet? Part of the new Fresh Shades series, this is a shorter version of the original book. The Sharp Shades stories are illustrated and have simpler language and a larger font than the original book.
They are perfect for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style.
Mary Chapman is a regular Shades 2.0 author who has also written picture books. After attending University College London and Leeds University she taught English in secondary schools. After some years in teaching Mary decided to train as a social worker, and later as a family therapist. In recent years she has achieved her ambition to become a writer. When she is not writing she enjoys discussing books with friends in a book group, art exhibitions, aerobics, walking, and gardening, although she would rather look at other people's gardens than work in her own.
