Pete, Fee, and Ozzie are living a happy life in Sydney until their father dies suddenly, and they are sent to live on their granny s farm, known as The Pumpkin Patch, near the village of Frogsville. Bored, lonely, and miserable, the three quickly become social outcasts after disgracing themselves at the Frogsville Show, and they wonder how they will ever survive.
What is it that happens one night, to change their lives forever, leading them to form The Pobblebonk Earth Detective Club ? Some of the cases they wind up investigating are bizarre, leaving the people of Frogsville gasping in horror.
Who sends the strange satchel that mysteriously falls to the veranda from the sky? And what is in it that results in the detectives having to work harder than ever on their cases? What does all of this have to do with the famous detective Sherlock Holmes?
Join the weird and whacky adventures of The Pobblebonk Earth Detective Club. You never know, you might become a detective yourself!

Written by former geography teacher Sue Baker, The Pobblebonk Earth Detective Club is a unique blend of fact, fiction and humour designed to inspire children's learning about the world.
Adventures and investigations lead to detailed studies of animal tracks and scats, frogs, saltwater crocodiles, mammals, marsupials and monotremes with a focus on kangaroos, platypus, echidnas and fascinating members of the native rats and mice family. Many other interesting and unusual Australian animals are included.

As well, the author who is an experienced and active on-the-ground conservationist, explores ‘hot global topics’ such as habitat destruction, endangered species, introduced species and conservation.
Aimed at 10-12 year olds, the book encourages children to investigate questions, carry out imaginative ‘earth detective’ activities and develop a life-long interest in learning. Teachers could use and adapt the quizzes and investigations, and even use sections of the text as reading material in a reading comprehension class.
