    • No, The Alternative Detective is for 10 to 13 year olds. It means that the cases he has are alternative in the fact that there is an evil shapeshifter from the Tudor period after his blood, a 14th century monk is his Stinking Shadow. So his cases are a bit of an adventure instead of the normal detective type case. Hope you are well.

  • Your new site looks great…I had thought for a moment “alternative” stood for detecting with crystals, herbs and massage oil…”alternative” in Germany usually means all things wellness related. Hm, a detective who detects with the help of essential oils…and incense sticks…I rather like that idea. The crime busting school of “Ohm” rather than “oomph”.

      • I wasn’t able to add you as a link to Willow’s site because of the template layout, but have added you as a link to my Mariathermann blog. Yay, it works! Yes, a detective with essential oils puts a whole new meaning on “sniffing out” a mystery.

      • That’s fantastic. Thank you. When I add the links to the Will Blyton on, I will put Willow on that also. I love the idea of sniffing out a mystery. You can imagine the detective following a trail of lavender. It is quite a change when I think of Arthur Stoker and his pongy breath.
