Stick & Fetch Investigate: Barking Up the Wrong Tree

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Sally Stick has decided that she and her faithful pooch Fetch are simply too talented when it comes to solving mysteries to deprive the world of their genius, so she starts her very own detective agency.

Hilarity ensues when the pair interpret a series of misunderstandings as potential new cases. Their enthusiastic search for clues and determination to follow imaginary evidence gets them into all sorts of scrapes. They carry on regardless and always convince themselves that they have achieved the best possible outcome.

Kicking off a new series, Sally’s story is funny, engaging and a celebration of the power of imagination. With amusing illustrations on every page, this first chapters book contains three complete stories and is ideal for young readers making the transition from picture books to independent reading.
