Alison Wonderland

by Helen Smith

Alison Wonderland, private detective, investigates strange goings on 'somewhere on the south coast' of England. A light hearted, quirky first novel dealing with both the familiar and the absurd.


There is a creature that lives in paradise on disused Ministry of Defence land near Weymouth, rooting among the dabs of colour in the field where wild flowers grow. It is called a shig. There are so many butterflies on the land that eyes are drawn at first to the dazzling yellows and blues flickering as their wings move amongst the wild flowers. But another, closer look reveals the fattest, woolliest animal on earth, the product of a union between a pig and a sheep.
