Product description

A detective story with a difference! Things in Anna’s life are going completely crazy. Her neighbours are behaving suspiciously, the girl next door keeps falling out with her, and then Gran suddenly dies. So when Anna’s hamster is mysteriously slaughtered, it’s the last straw. Who is the culprit? Anna vows to find out. But the search will take her into all kinds of comical and unexpected terrain, teaching her many lessons about life and family… A wonderfully fresh new comedy from a former stand-up comedian, which explores life, love and tragedy in a quirky and lighthearted way.

Winner of the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize 2010.

    Awesome! Finally there is a book that shows me a good and funny side to pets stories. Not just pets but kids investigation novels. Katie Davies is an outstanding author. The best ever!!!
