It was a peaceful day like any other at the farm, when a bloodcurdling cry rang out in the chicken coop. Oh no! Mother Hen’s egg was stolen! Who could have done such a thing? Inspector Biquette has his work cut out for him. All the farm animals participate in the investigation led by the not very clever or astute billy goat detective. An absurd but irresistible comic book!


Sandra Dumais, author

In 2001, on a bike trip from Nova Scotia to Toronto, Sandra Dumais stopped in Montreal, fell in love with the city, and decided to stay put. She studied Print Media and worked as a freelance Designer in ad agencies and publishing before launching her own line of children’s illustrations, map collections and stationery under the name Moon and Sparrow. She loves animals, mysteries, and kids – so she feels very lucky to have both written and illustrated her first book/series, “Farm Crimes.” She also teaches kids’ art workshops in Rosemont, and in her free time can be found wandering the alleys and parks of Montreal with her husband, their two little artists dog, India.
