The Dog Detectives - Gift Set

Dogs sniffing out trouble
Review by The Mole

This is a gift set of 3 Dog Detective Books

The Dog Detectives are Detective Jack and Deputy Poco Loco and each story sees them in a different part of the world doing their bit to save the day. With each page being a full colour picture that is bright and cheerful and with plenty to talk about if it is being read to a child. The whole presentation of these books make then excellent early readers for children to read aloud or alone. Each story is written with rhyme, alliteration and prose. At the end of each book is a 'facts' section that tells something of the facts about each story, things about the place that are mentioned in the story, so they can be used to teach a little and act as a discussion catalyst as well. Really good, fun books that can be bought individually or as this gift set.

An Outback Odyssey

Set in Australia, it sees the detectives helping to find a didgeridoo that has been stolen by dingoes. We meet the native people of Australia as well as some of the varied wildlife.

The Great Grizzly North

In British Columbia the detectives decide to help get everyone's bikes back from the grizzliest grizzly of all as he has stolen them so he can win the Great Rocky Cycling Race.

Lost In London

The detectives have to find, and return, the ravens to the Tower of London and have to travel across London seeing some of the sights as they go.
