Peski Kids


The Peski Kids 1, The Mystery of the Squashed Cockroach
Life is hard enough without having to spend time with your siblings.  But there is no other way for Joe, Fin and April Peski to solve the mystery of the cockroach catastrophes that are rocking their new home town of Currawong.

Along with Loretta, their stunningly beautiful yet sociopathic next-door neighbour, and Pumpkin the world’s worst trained dog, they set out to prove their innocence.

Together they are The Peski Kids


The Peski Kids 2, Bear in the Woods

9780143788836No one believes April saw an enormous bear in the woods. No one thinks Fin didn’t break the Cat Lady’s foot. No one wants to know why Loretta bought Dad new underwear. And no one listens to Joe, because he never has much to say. The Peski Kids are up to their eyeballs in trouble, and it’s all their dog’s fault.

Now the Mayor is watching them like a hawk. She won’t let anyone ruin Currawong’s Daffodil Festival. That’s fine, the Peski Kids want to blend in, the only problem is…they are really terrible at it.



The Peski Kids 3, Stuck in the Mud


Things are about to get messy for the Peski Kids as mud-run madness descends on Currawong!

Chaos parachutes into Currawong when the annual Mud Run hits town. The Peski kids are soon swept up in the festivities. Or in April’s case, strapped to a vision-impaired competitor in the race.

Can Joe beat the fierce opposition? Can Fin hit Joe with a giant mud ball? Can April make it through a school day without getting expelled? Who knows? But when the prize money goes missing someone has to figure out what really happened under all that mud!


Peski Kids 4, Near Extinction
On sale January 2020


The annual geography excursion was supposed to be educational, but with the Peski Kids on board it soon turns into chaos. April tries to smash her way out of a moving bus, Fin gets his head bitten by a dinosaur, Joe finds himself carrying around a beautiful girl with two fake sprained ankles and Loretta gets over enthusiastic with a butane torch. That’s all before the criminals turn up and hijack the school bus.

The Peski Kids are going to be in so much trouble … if they make it back to Currawong alive.




Peski Kids 5, The Final Mission
On sale August 2020


With a team of international super spies hunting them down, the Peski Kids orders are simple – act normal. But for Joe, Fin, April and Loretta that mission is impossible. Tensions run high when their mum moves in and starts spotting enemy agents behind every corner of Currawong.

Should the Peski Kids get out of town? Of course they should! But they’re not going to. Not when there’s a potato festival to celebrate.
