In a nutshell: domestic crime dramas delightfully told and illustrated | Dorothy Constance Mae Louise, aka Dot, has her own super-sleuthing detective agency with her dog McClusky and her best friend Beans. In this episode, they are off on the school trip to an adventure camp. Excitement at school has been running high, but Dot notices that classmate Laura is clearly up to something. The trip is very eventful, and by using their detective skills, Beans and Dot work out what Laura was doing, and why – the why is a surprise, and makes them see Laura in a new light. Readers will be charmed by Dot and her lively, engaging narrative style. Clara Vulliamy’s illustrations make this as fun to look at as it is to read. Dot hits the spot every time!
Publisher, Ruth Alltimes: “Dot is destined to be the new ‘book-best-friend’ of young girls everywhere; she is impishly funny, aspirational and so full of curiosity that girl readers will be drawn into her world of mini mysteries! Clara Vulliamy's signature stylish, witty artwork creates an irresistible young fiction package.”
