Detective Dachshund of Battersea Police wears a smart blue hat and a matching fleece. He has boundless energy for fighting crime, but his detective skills, sadly, are far from sublime. Now, Detective Dachshund one night was told, to catch a fluffy thief who was sneaky and bold. The thief went by the name of Clawdius Cat… and should our detective trust Reece the Rat? Wanted posters showed the cat’s cheeky face, blowing raspberries from lamp posts all over the place! Officers had already scoured the city… how could Detective Dachshund find this bad kitty?

Review by Stacey

Detective Dachshund and the Fluffy Thief is a fun, children’s rhyming story about a Dachshund who is a detective and his tails (sorry pun intended) as he tries to locate and bring to justice prolific thief Clawdius Cat with a twist in the story.

The plot is most certainly exciting and engaging. The illustrations are fabulous and bring the tale to life. The wording is quite heavy though, even if it does rhyme – which is done perfectly. With there being almost double the number of pages of what you usually find in a picture book and quite a lot of text I would say this is more for early middle-grade readers than picture book ones.

Overall, it is an adventurous and humorous read that I can see children enjoying from beginning to end.
