A hilarious junior fiction book series from Ailsa Wild about solving mysteries, blending families and leaping to conclusions!


Sita 'Squishy' Taylor is a cheeky, sneaky 11-year-old who lives with her dad and step-family in a very crowded apartment. Luckily for Squishy, their building is huge - and there's always plenty of mysteries to investigate! Like...



  • How can summer be fun if you don't go to the beach?

  • Why is rainbow cake so delicious? 

  • What kind of scientist wears red sneakers?

  • Who would try to smuggle rare birds?


  • Australian superstar Squishy Taylor is a curious, likeable and instantly relatable hero for ALL kids aged 6 and up. She's part of a blended family - a new kind of normal for so many kids, whether it's a Modern Family or more of a Brady Bunch. Between nightly Skype-chats with her mum, dealing with a noisy baby or her two new 'bonus sisters', there's always a new challenge or exciting mystery to solve. Squishy Taylor and the Bonus Sisters (#1) was listed as a Notable Book in the 2017 CBCA Awards, and was shortlisted for the 2017 Readings Children's Book Prize. Squishy Taylor and the Tunnel of Doom (#6) was shortlisted for the Wilderness Society's Environment Award for Children's Literature in 2017.
