How to Order


It’s 1929 and 11-year-old Johnny Swanson needs to make money to help his widowed mother pay the rent. So he sets himself up as an agony aunt offering advice for a shilling and in the advertising scam business (Smelly feet? Wear a clothes peg on your nose!). Soon he’s raking in the money. But he’s getting in too deep and now his own mother is in mortal danger. There’s only one thing for it: Johnny must assume another role – as undercover detective.

What the critics say:

‘Updale doesn’t put a foot wrong in this marvellous tale’ – Times Online
‘Oh, I did enjoy Johnny Swanson – it’s serious and funny’ – TheBookbag.co.uk
