Detective Beans and the Case of the Missing Hat




In this hilarious full-colour graphic novel, Cat Town’s best kitten detective is on the case – of his very own missing hat!

Detective Beans is available 24/7* for all your mystery solving and ice-cream taste testing needs.
* Except on school days, and after bedtime.

Today he’s investigating the case of the missing hat. His missing hat. The clues take Beans all over Cat Town. He encounters philosophical pigeons, dodgy street magicians, lounge singers and soup chefs, and even a mysterious trash portal.

No one is a match for his crime-solving powers. But will Beans find his hat before Mum is expecting him home for dinner?

About the author

Li Chen

Li Chen was born in Beijing, China, and moved to New Zealand when she was five (with her parents, not as a solo child explorer, I don't think that's allowed). She's always loved drawing and has been working as a full-time comic artist since 2012. Detective Beans and the Case of the Missing Hat is her first graphic novel. When she's not drawing, Li likes to hang out with her cats or go on really long walks. Oh, and she drinks a LOT of tea.
