Review: Whodunnit, Eddie Woo? Team Trouble! (Book #2)

Eddie Woo and his best mates Rusty and DT are prepping for the Triple Threat competition at school. 

It’s got academics, performing arts and sports, and they all need to excel at ALL of them to win. 
But there’s something else going on in Eddie’s life and it’s distracting him from focusing on the competition.

Mr Appleby is a close family friend to Eddie and his parents — he helped Eddie’s parents when they first came to Australia. 

Eddie and his dad regularly visit Mr Appleby at the Sunnyside Aged Care Home, but when they go to visit one day before school, they discover that the home is closing down. In only a week!

Something doesn’t seem right, and Eddie is determined to uncover the truth.

With full support from his parents (who really don’t want the home to be closed), Eddie starts investigating the Sunnyside closure with his friends. But there are some seriously sinister bad guys doing everything they can to stop Eddie from finding out what’s really going on.

Luckily for Eddie, Mr Appleby knows some secrets, and he leaves clues to help Eddie along the way. Readers will delight in solving the puzzles along with Eddie and his mates to find out the real reason why Sunnyside is closing and stop the bad guys in their tracks — all while training and competing in the Triple Threat competition at school!

Team Trouble! is book 2 in a brilliant new junior fiction series from Australia’s favourite maths teacher Eddie Woo, this one with Dave Hartley. With superb illustrations from Mitch Vane splashed throughout, it’s super engaging and perfect for junior readers.

You can definitely read book 2 without having read book 1 (Time Out!), but this series is soooo good, I recommend starting at the beginning so you don’t miss any of the fun.
