Cora Flash and the Diamond of Madagascar - Tommy Davey A little bit of Penny, from Inspector Gadget, combined with a younger Nancy Drew; Cora is a precocious 11 year-old girl with a knack for solving crime.

This was a fun, straightforward read for kids 8+. It reads very much like vintage kids' mystery, with a modern kick, even including her little dog sidekick, Calvin (tiny, but smarter than he seems for a dog).

I look forward to reading about the rest of her clever, mock-Agatha Christie adventures.
