RARA-AVIS: Re: childhood detectives

While on the subject of detective books for kids, anyone remember a book called (I think) FIVE CLUES TO THE DRAGON. No idea who wrote it, but it was my first mystery. I was about 7 when I read it (that's 1971) here in the UK. It's about a gang of kids who, as the title suggests, have to solve the mystery by deciphering five clues.

Thanks, Paul
