A Sneak Peak into Sheeba and the Private Detectives

SPD is a series featuring four curious friends who love adventures. These young heroes travel all around Pakistan in search of local ‘mysteries’. Sheeba, Reemi, Majid and Qulsoom apply science, mathematics and a dose of common sense sleuthing to solve the gravest of community conundrums. They are armed with a cart-load of books and cheered on by their fearless pets, Speedy (a dog of mixed origins) and Tufaan (a temperamental donkey).

The series is available in print, digital, and audio formats. The comics are supplemented with a 36 week read-a-thon; a comprehensive child development and reading program that promotes independent reading among the target group. The content is appropriate for ages 7-13 and it is an amalgamation of an engaging storyline that incorporates within itself basic concepts of math, science and social studies with the purpose of making learning fun for the average student.

The content has been developed by a team of local and international children’s literature experts working on the content development, including story-lines and levelling of math and science components to make the content age specific and in line with the curriculum. Furthermore, these comic issues are backed by detailed qualitative and quantitative research to ensure cultural appropriateness of the complete content. Our comic books also meet with the national agenda of primary level education and have been successful in achieving the goal of enhancing reading ability and literacy of the target audience.
