Truly Tan: Jinxed! | junior fiction |Claire Robertson – Illustrator | HarperCollins | May 2013
Tan′s back. She′s bolder. She′s brighter. But is she … jinxed?
I am writing to you with the aid of my Mail Order Moose Pen – you know, the one that had edible antlers …
Dad put an old tram in our back paddock. It has Follow Me Through the Shadow painted on it. Obviously that tram is full of secrets. I bet it is even haunted. The problem is I can′t get inside. I am banned.
Just as well I am a Secret Spy. Just as well I am cunning and … stealthy.
This could be my biggest case. This could make me famous.
It is exciting to be me.
