Trouble in the Foodlands

Trouble in the Foodlands.

by Johanna Knox, illustrations by Toby Morris

This detective story is another instalment in the Minnie Sharp series, the only continued storyline at this level. The distinctive tone – hard-boiled detective noir – ensures the story has an entertaining surface, and this is matched with an equally satisfying plot: Minnie is required to solve conflict in the Foodlands, the main farming district on Mars. The character, setting, voice, and themes will be familiar to those who’ve met Minnie Sharp, allowing for reading activities across multiple texts – but the story also stands alone.
