Alasdair Beckett-King

Books talk: for children aged 8 years or older: M is for Montgomery Bonbon


Unlock your inner detective with a series of funny, silly and clever challenges.

About Montgomery Bonbon: many people go their whole lives without noticing anything
that is afoot, amiss, or even untoward; without ever experiencing that toe-tingling,
stomach-twisting sensation that a mystery is about to unfold.


Not Bonnie Montgomery - the world's best detective. Not that anyone (other than Grampa
Banks) has heard of her... But they might have heard of the great Montgomery Bonbon,
the well-dressed gentleman detective who (apart from the hat and moustache) looks
suspiciously like a 10-year-old girl.


Alasdair Beckett-King is a multi-award-winning stand-up comedian, as seen on Mock the
Week, Comedy Central Live and as heard on Radio 4's The News Quiz. In 2023 Walker
Books published his children’s whodunit Montgomery Bonbon: Murder at the Museum,
and Montgomery Bonbon: Death at the Lighthouse followed later that year. Alasdair’s viral
video spoofs have millions of views, and his hair is quite nice.

Every person attending needs a ticket.
