Detective Dog


Julia Donaldson

The Gruffalo has been the most popular children’s picture book of the last 15 years.

Now Gruffalo creator, Julia Donaldson, has published an exciting tale about a young boy called Peter and Nell, a dog with the most amazing sense of smell.  Nell can sniff out a sock stuck down the back of the sofa, track down a lost ball and is always guaranteed to find any lost toys. So when disaster strikes and the books at Peter’s school go missing Nell is on hand to track down the thief. The whole class follow Nell as she leads them out of the town, across the golf course and into the wood. Behind a fence they finally find the book thief reading his way through the pile of books.

Sara Ogilvie’s bright and lively illustrations bring to life this heart warming tale about the importance of books and libraries.
