Creator of the children's favourite 'Paddington bear' also has a series of books for grown ups.
They concern a French detective, Monsieur Pamplemousse and his erstwhile companion - a bloodhound named Pommes Frites.
They are hilarious, pure farce, confusion and misdirection everywhere.
Pamplemousse left the police after an unfortunate incident with a Can Can chorus line. He now works as an inspector for 'Le Guide' a sort of Michelin review of high quality restaurants throughout France. Crime and good food mix throughout the books and each of my collection has been enjoyed many times.
Highly recommended grin
