Phyllis Wong and the Forgotten Secrets of Mr Okyto by Geoffrey McSkimming

Phyllis is into magic and she has a knack for it.
Her great-grandfather was a world famous magician who disappeared mysteriously; Phyllis has obviously inherited his abilities.

Phyllis also fancies herself as a bit of a super-sleuth.

So when the lady in the antique shop tells her that one of her expensive blue wren bookends has been swapped right underneath her watchful eyes, Phyllis is on the case!

Phyllis is a strong female character, the story is well-written and detailed. The content is appropriate for strong 8+ readers although the tone is aimed at 10+ readers who enjoy something out of the ordinary.

Phyllis Wong has an August publication date in Australia through Allen and Unwin.
