This very funny picture book works on a number of different levels. Children will love the characters: renegade seagull cop Steve; his sidekick Mac, a goldfish in a bowl (though complete with police badge); Lola the glamorous hippo lifeguard. They’ll also love being able to solve the crime before the cops – sharp eyes will spot that it’s the crabs who are sneakily stealing the sand. Adults will laugh at Steven Seagull, at the cop-buddy film spoofs and – those of a certain age anyway – will pick up the odd Baywatch reference! It’s all great fun and the pages are full of extra comic details that will keep everyone smiling. ~ Andrea Reece
