A Clue for Clara giveaway!

July 26th, 2020

With everything else that’s been going on, I’ve only just realised that it’s a week and a day until A Clue for Clara is released. Eeek, I need to do a giveaway!

So here’s the blurb:


Clara wants to be a famous detective with her own TV show. She can read claw marks, find missing feathers and knows morse code and semaphore. There’s just one problem. She’s a small scruffy chook, and no one takes her seriously.”

A puzzling and hilarious mystery from bestselling author, Lian Tanner. For 8-12 y.o. and anyone else who loves humour (and chooks.)

If you’d like to read more about Clara, and how she teams up with the local policeman’s daughter to investigate a crime that’s tearing apart the town of Little Dismal, leave a comment below (making it clear that you’re entering the giveaway) and share this post with your friends.

This one is only for Australia/New Zealand – apologies to those in other countries.

    Would you be able to write ten more books about Clara please?
    I love Clara the detective chicken. I haven’t quite finished reading it yet, but it is the best book I have ever read and I hope there will soon be more Clara books to read. The story is so so interesting and exciting and I get absorbed into the book.
    I got some chickens during COVID19. They are very funny and they like pecking my clothes and me.

    P.S. My son absolutely loves your book! I picked it up from the Library when I was trying to find something he’d like to read. Today I googled you as he really wants to read another book in the series … 🙂 Could you be convinced to write another???
    I saw you had a Clara book give away – how does this work? Is it still open? Thanks.

      Oh my, that is such a lovely message to get! Thanks J, I’m glad you’re enjoying Clara. I’m writing a follow up book at the moment, but it’s a fair way off getting published. In the meantime, maybe you could write a story about your chickens?

      Carolyn, thanks so much for passing on J’s message. I’m afraid the giveaway finished a while ago – I’ve been a bit lax with the blog lately, so haven’t given an update. But thank you for the encouragement – it means a lot.

    I Absolutely loved this book. When I hear
    about a good children’s book I try to borrow it from the library to decide myself. I have 3
    Granddaughters who adore books, the 8 year old is borrows 10 books a week! It’s a fabulous story sooooo funny and I cackled my way through this exciting crime solving adventure. Clara has the best lines in the book of course – can’t wait to read her next adventure..

      What a wonderful message to start the day, Kerry! Thanks – I’m so glad you loved Clara. And how nice to have book-loving granddaughters. The 8 year old sounds like me when I was a kid – never a book out of my hand.
