The first book in a hilarious new mystery series from the author of Captain Pug for animal lovers and would-be detectives everywhere!
Laura James's love of storytelling began at an early age and led her to undertake a degree in Film Studies and an MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University. Laura's debut novel Captain Pug was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize in 2017. Laura lives near Bath with her two dachshunds, Brian and Florence. Emily Fox is a Bristol-based illustrator who graduated from Falmouth University. She loves to experiment with colour, funny stories and animals, which means that Fabio is the perfect project for her!
A quirky tale written in a breezy, confidential tone, with an
eye-catching design in neon pink and green. Emily Fox's
illustrations create visual templates for Laura James' zany
characters ... Even reluctant readers will have a blast * Irish
