Batthew Aromascent and the Missing Corpse Flower
Ella Mulvey & John Roebuck
When the world’s largest and most pungent flower goes missing right before its grand unveiling, the smell-mad city of Candlenut is in uproar. Luckily, Batthew Aromascent, 11-year-old heir to the famed Olfactory fragrance house, and his best friend, Lavender, are on the case.
It isn’t just any missing flower, either. It’s a legendary Titan Arum, grown from a seed that was sent by Batthew’s parents – renowned noses, Roger and Joy Aromascent – before they vanished on an expedition deep in the jungle.
Batthew and Lavender have just three days to track it down before the flower wilts and dies, along with any clues as to his parents’ whereabouts. But are they prepared for what they’ll find in the darker corners of the fragrance world?
The first dazzling book in an exciting new adventure mystery series about the rich world of fragrance, starring a young Nose named Batthew Aromascent, whose parents disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
