Although Jase now has to share a room with his brother Ross and his grandma has bad days when she doesn’t remember things, Jase is happy that his grandma lives with them because she used to be a police detective (having risen to the role of Chief Constable for Nottingham) and tells him awesome stories about all the criminals she’s found and had locked up. Otherwise, I’m afraid that although there is some good stuff here, I would rather give my time to a children’s author who wrote the book themselves and does not benefit from the marketing and publicity budget set aside for this. She is also the founder of Our Dementia Choir, which compassionately explores the impact of music therapy on those living with dementia.

What I also enjoyed, is that it was set in Skegness, a much loved holiday destination that I'm familiar with, so I can easily imagine myself there, the sights, sounds and smells(side note, I last went to Skegness in 2019, pre pandemic, and Jedward were the entertainment one night! I found it spellbinding and thoroughly enjoyable reading and a great way to get away from the everyday doom, gloom, despondency and despair of this techno-ridden age!

McClure said: “It’s very important to me that The Castle Rock Mystery Crew will not just entertain but educate readers. This is a warm-hearted, page-turning mystery for young readers with an authentic and kind depiction of living with a relative with dementia at its centre. A very enjoyable read between myself and my son, similar to a classic famous five adventure, but with modern values and a great setting in a Skeggy caravan park.

A mystery story that's a modern-day Secret Seven for fans of Tom Fletcher's The Danger Gang and Marcus Rashford's The Breakfast Club Adventures.Vicky McClure’s adventure mystery for readers aged 9+ (written by Kim Curran and illustrated by Alan Brown and the first in a series) is well-meaning and sensitive in incorporating people with dementia within the story.

Scholastic UK has signed the debut children’s book from BAFTA award-winning actor and producer Vicky McClure, best known for her roles as DI Kate Fleming in BBC’s “Line of Duty”, Lol in Shane Meadows’ “This Is England” and Lana Washington in “Trigger Point”. As people grow more suspicious of each other, tensions start to mount and when a pair of stolen earrings are found outside Harri’s window, Mr Collins (the park manager) suspects the Crew of being responsible and threatens to throw them and their families out of the park and ban them for life! Kids, I wasn't a strong reader when i was young; even now I'm not the most confident reader but here's what I've learnt: go at your own pace, one word at a time, one day at a time, do it your way and with style.

The Castle Rock Mystery Crew is an exciting mystery story, set in Skegness over the summer holidays. The kids can go on and try to solve the crime, there’s a real great plot that runs throughout it, but also it is just about having a nice time. Inspiration for the story comes from my work with ‘Our Dementia Choir’ and ‘Line of Duty’, my favourite film ‘Stand By Me’, and my own childhood holidays in ‘Skeggy’! He’s sure it’ll be a boring few weeks, but then he teams up with a new crew of friends to uncover who is behind some mysterious thefts. This book should give Curran co-billing and I find it very disappointing that McClure has not done this (although I do give her credit for singling Curran out for thanks in the Author’s Note at the back).Nana Rose was a detective in the Nottinghamshire police and she's always talked to Jase about the police and her cases. Also the Line-Of Duty side of my life now is great and it’s got that element of mystery in it and adventure. year-old Jase is spending the summer holidays at the Castle Rock Caravan Park with his auntie and grandma, who has dementia. Our Book of the Month for age 9+ is Castle Rock Mystery Crew, the first laugh-out-loud mystery from actress and dementia campaigner Vicky McClure! However, the finger of blame has started pointing at the children – they must find the true culprit to clear their names and see justice done!
