Synopsis

Inspector Croc Investigates by Sam Lloyd

The peace and tranquility of Whoops-a-Daisy World has been shattered! There's a mini crime wave sweeping the town. Various incidents have been reported across Whoops-a-Daisy World and it's up to Inspector Croc to investigate. Just who could be causing all the commotion? Can Croc piece together all the clues and crack the case? Of course he can! Another fantastically funny story from the incredibly talented Sam Lloyd, winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and award-winning author of Mr Pusskins. Sam's Whoops-a-Daisy World adventures are filled with drama, action, heaps of hilarity and the all-important feelgood ending.

Reviews

A sweetly silly story. Financial Times Full of gloriously imaginative illustrations, the entertaining mystery captured the imagination of our children to the very end Carousel
