An interactive crime caper with lots of clues to look and spot.

STOP THIEF! Someone has stolen the diamond warp drive from Lady Velocity Speed’s car. Without it she’ll never win The Big Race! Can super-sleuthing sloths Stan and Stella crack the case? Maybe with a helping hand . . . (Hey, reader – that’s you!)

This immersive adventure will go down well with little mystery lovers.

Review by Stacey

In The Upside-Down Detective Agency, we meet two sloths who are detectives, Stella and Stan. Their first case of the day is to help racing car driver Veronica Velocity Speed to find out who took her diamond warp drive from her car.

The story is interactive as each page asks the reader to help the detectives do their job and find something within the illustrations before moving on to the next page.

Talking of the illustrations, these are full-page, bright, colourful, and are the main focus of the book.

I really enjoyed this book and I can see young readers loving it too. I mean who doesn’t love a book featuring sloths, especially detective ones. Plus, being interactive, children will get so much more out of it than just an adventurous, mystery story.

Ellie has always loved picture books. As a little girl she thought it would be pretty cool to work on them – and even more amazing to write one. After a lot of dithering, cups of tea, and creative support from the fab people in her life she finally managed to do both. Ellie lives in London and her next life goal is to own a cat. A fluffy one.
