Odo Hirsch grew up in Melbourne, Australia, where he trained to be a doctor. He now lives in London, where he spends his time writing children's books. He is the author of the three books in the Bartlett series, all Junior Library Guild selections, as well as Hazel Green.From Booklist:
Gr. 4-6. In this sequel to Hazel Green (2003), Hazel helps a friend by solving a bizarre mystery. When the local fishmonger's prize lobsters are stolen from his tank, he plunges into despair, a reaction seemingly beyond the scale of his loss. Young Hazel decides to help, and help she does, by catching the thief, discovering the true problem, and working toward a real solution. Feisty, flawed, independent-minded, and good-hearted, Hazel is an appealing character, and like the best fictional detectives, she has interesting allies: her stalwart pal, Marcus; her mathematically inclined friend, Yakov (aka the Yak); and her confidant, florist Mrs. Gluck. Unlike the protagonists of most books for young people, Hazel's life is centered not in the family or school, but in her community, where she moves with ease and savvy. A witty Australian novel with a winning combination of innocence and intelligence. Carolyn Phelan
