Alberta is the clever cousin of Coco Carlomagno, the well-respected (if somewhat easily startled) Buenos Aires Chief of Police. When Coco runs into an unusually difficult problem, he calls on Alberta to help him solve the mystery.

A delightfully funny detective series for readers aged 6+, filled with crime-fighting guinea pigs, mind-bending puzzles and hilarious illustrations. Fans of the Andrew Joyner's Boris series or Andy Griffiths' Flat Cat books will love this innovative series by two of Australia's best-loved children's authors.
