9780749011390: Monsieur Pamplemousse on Vacation

Monsieur Pamplemousse is looking forward to a well-earned break in the South of France courtesy of his employer – all he has to do is collect a piece of artwork for Le Guide’s Director. But when his contact fails to show and a dismembered body is washed up outside the hotel, the holiday mood evaporates. As Pamplemousse struggles with the case (and with modern technology) his ever-faithful bloodhound Pommes Frites is on hand offering proof why, during his time with the Paris Sûreté, he was one of their top sniffer dogs. Monsieur Pamplemousse on Vacation is packed full of the charming blend of comedy, crime and cuisine that Michael Bond’s creations have become famed for and which are fondly savored.

About the Author:

MICHAEL BOND was born in Newbury, Berkshire in 1926 and started writing while serving in the army during the Second World War. In 1958 the first book featuring his most famous creation, Paddington Bear, was published and many stories of his adventures followed. In 1983 he turned his hand to adult fiction and the detective cum gastronome par excellence Monsieur Pamplemousse was born. Michael Bond was awarded the OBE in 1997 and in 2007 was made an Honorary Doctor of Letters by Reading University. He is married, with two grown-up children, and lives in London.

Review:

'Not a page passes without a well-earned chuckle, a guffaw, or a fit of the giggles' --Strand Magazine
