Sheeba and the Private Detectives

Department of International Development (UKAid)


Sheeba and the Private Detectives 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.

Redon Films made a video on how Department of International Development (DFID) is making learning fun for young girls in Pakistan.
