LoveReading View on Three Pickled Herrings The Detective Agency's Second Case

Award-winning Sally Gardner has written a deliciously topsy-turvy story as Wings & Co, a rather special fairy detective agency, gets on the case. When Sir Walter Cross, a man of remarkably regular habits, does something totally remarkable and unusual, Wings & Co begin an investigation. When two further completely unexpected events occur, the agency concludes that magic must be involved.  Charming and funny, this is an imaginative delight. David Roberts’s illustrations capture it perfectly.

Three Pickled Herrings The Detective Agency's Second Case Synopsis

'Agatha Christie for kids' - the second in a detective agency series brimming with mystery and magic by million-copy-selling author, Sally Gardner, and illustrated by acclaimed artist, David Roberts.

At the Wings and Co Detective Agency, Emily Vole and her friends are beginning to worry. It's five months since their official opening and they still haven't had one case. Then local landowner Sir Walter Cross dies suddenly and mysteriously. The detectives suspect meddling. And when Mr Rollo the tailor mysteriously loses everything and Pan Smith's wedding plans are ruined the night before her big day, they're convinced there must be magic at play. Now they have not one, but three pickled herrings to deal with! Can they solve the mystery of who is stealing people's luck before things go too far? Includes Wings and Co detective case notes, character profiles and clues.
