What a delight this book was. Watts is a dog who wants to be a writer, but his attempts to make his own way in the world are dogged by everyone’s expectation that he following in his parents’ paw prints and become a famous detective. Staying as a guest at Whiskerton hall he finds himself faced with not one but four mysteries. Assistance comes in the form of Pearl Whiskerton, a cat with a nose for mystery.

Watts and Whiskerton is a neatly plotted jigsaw full of beautifully drawn characters. Meg McLaren effortlessly fits the four mysteries together and presents the clues at such a pace that a young reader will have great fun solving the case along with our heroes. The use of annotated illustrations to feed in extra information is tremendous fun (loved the ducks).

A PAWFECT introduction to the world of detective stories.

This is fab! I loved the way that this book is presented, with little side notes and comments to the reader. I also really enjoyed the little explanations of things, such as why archaeologists make a grid when they're exploring an area. I also really like illustrations with a limited palette and this book does that really well.
