A brilliantly funny detective story for readers aged 5+

Younger readers will laugh-out-loud at this fun mystery with comic-style illustrations throughout

Guy Bass is one of our favourite children's authors and we're thrilled to see this new series of funny, highly illustrated and super accessible mystery books for younger readers. Packed with silly humour and comic book-style illustrations, this one is perfect for newly independent or reluctant readers.


Hugh Dunnit may be a schoolboy, but that doesn't stop him from cracking the toughest cases. Like the case of the shredded maths homework. Sure, lesser minds might collar Hugh's new dog, Shelter. But Hugh knows there's more to sniff out. Working through the suspects, Hugh digs up a bigger mystery: just where does Shelter come from?

Guy Bass is an award-winning author who has written more than 30 books, including the series Stitch Head, Spynosaurs, and Skeleton Keys. He lives in London with his wife.
