The Detective Dog
There once was a dog with a keen sense of smell
But Nell has other talents too
Every Monday she goes to school with Peter and listens to children read
Peter’s dog Nell has an amazing sense of smell
She was known far and wide as Detective Dog Nell
So who better to have on hand when they arrive one morning to discover that the school’s books have all disappeared! Who could have taken them? And why? There’s only one dog for the job.
Whether it’s finding a lost shoe or discovering who did a poo on the new gravel path, her ever-sniffing nose is always hard at work
and Detective Dog Nell is ready to sniff out the culprit! Written by the brilliant Julia Donaldson and stunningly illustrated by the multi-talented illustrator and printmaker Sara Ogilvie, The Detective Dog is a fast-paced celebration of books, reading, libraries, and the relationship between a little boy and his rather special dog.
