The Buttercup Girls

Sophie, Bessie, and Nell are Daisyville's youngest detectives. Thanks to their investigative know-how, the local Sheriff can put his feet up and enjoy his coffee. And that's a good thing, because this dusty old town has more than its share of hysterics and drama.

FYI... Girl detectives, in the late 1800s, had to be determined, ambitious, and fearless. A good sense of humour didn't hurt either... ha-ha!

Sophie, and her friends, check all the boxes... they're observant, have gut instinct, are super energetic, and possess topnotch communication skills.

But get this... In those days...girl didn't have apps, social media, websites, or ... phones?


Thief in the Rosebush - Case #1

Someone or something has stolen Miss Maddie's shoe.

Who or what would snatch a shoe right off an old lady's foot?

Is it another prank by those pesky Bartlett Boys?

What's up with the librarian?

The whole town is in an uproar.

Speculation runs high...

And as for the local sheriff...


Enter The Buttercup Girls...
