Simon and Chester’s first graphic novel in the series, following the picture book ‘Sir Simon – Super Scarer’.

On a boring rainy Saturday, best friends Simon and Chester decide to put together their best sleuthing outfits, and become detectives! Who knows what exciting case will fall into their lap and send them on a life changing adventure?! Simon has big ideas about what type of mystery should be coming their way, but when an unexpected pug is found in their home, Chester convinces him to take this less dramatic case.

Will they solve the case of the mysterious pug?!
Clues are found! Questions get asked! And a ghost makes himself a pair of legs. What more could one want?

Cale Atkinson gives us a sneak peek at his first graphic novel, Simon & Chester: Super Detectives—a story about a ghost named Simon and a boy named Chester. Illustrator of this year’s Telling Tales poster, Cale will share his secrets about how to create a graphic novel.
