The Lovereading4Kids comment
Baking, detection and fairy tales are all whisked together in this appealing story to make a tasty picture book. When Sky Private Eye gets an emergency call from the Little Old Man on her cupcake communicator (she combines careers in cake making and crime solving) to say that the Gingerbread Boy has gone missing, she speeds into action with trusty dog Snuffle at her side. They quickly work out that Foxy Loxy is on the Gingerbread Boy’s tail too, but manage to save the day (and the biscuit) with mission finally accomplished at the Fairytale Olympics. A busy, action-packed story that puts an original spin on the world of fairy tales. ~ Andrea Reece

With her bag full of detective gadgets and Just-in-Time cupcake recipes, she will sniff out the clues and solve the mystery in no time at all.
Daniela Schneider, founder and publisher at Five Quills, said: “We are really excited to have these two new series written by Jane Clarke coming out this year. Jane has a fantastic talent for capturing the voice of the diverse range of characters and bringing to life the fun and adventure of childhood. Furthermore, Loretta and James’s vivid and dynamic illustrations for both the picture book and fiction series respectively are key to making the books accessible to all young readers.”
Inspired by familiar fairytales, but presented in a delightfully refreshing way, the Sky Private Eye stories are filled with clever, unexpected twists and recognisable characters as you’ve never seen them before. Sky is a young detective with stacks of pizazz and a penchant for baking cupcakes. With her cool detective gadgets, trusty dog Snuffle and Bake it Better recipe book, she’ll outwit the baddies in no time at all. Waterstone’s Picture This award-winning illustrator Loretta Schauer’s vibrant, action-packed artwork includes plenty of funny details to spot as Sky races against the clock to save the day. A child-friendly cupcake recipe is included in each book so that children and grown-ups can share the stories beyond the pages.
