A Reader Review Panel Pick of the Year 2015 - chosen by Ruby Laverty, aged 6 - Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Month From the company that launched Where’s Wally comes this super new search-and-find storybook. Little dog Migloo leads readers through Sunnytown, and very bright and busy it is too. He visits the town square, the fire station, the garage and the school and each one is packed with characters and incident! You can spot Migloo’s friends, including Eric and Ernie the builders, and Mr and Mrs Dickens (he sells the books and she teaches with them, one of a number of nice extras for grown-ups) while author William Bee is himself a character in the book, popping up with a placard and questions relevant to each page! There’s a narrative to follow too involving the breakdown of the school bus. Lots of fun, this will keep children entertained and busy for hours. ~ Andrea Reece

From the creator of Whatever, comes a brand new series and the ULTIMATE search-and-find story book experience.

Luckily, when that loveable dog wags his tail, Sunnytown's finest come calling...Migloo might just save the day!
