An adorable new highly-illustrated series bursting with mystery and mischief for readers aged 5+

Introducing Watts and Whiskerton, the most charming dog and cat detective duo you'll ever solve mysteries with!

Younger readers are going to love this charming mystery, perfect for animal lovers and newly independent readers! Packed with mystery, adventure and lots of gentle humour, not to mention gorgeous illustrations throughout, we predict this new series will be a hit.


Watts doesn't think he's got what it takes to be a great detective like his parents. So when they jet off on their next case, he decides to take a holiday to Whiskerton Manor instead.

But there, Watts befriends Pearl Whiskerton, a curious cat with a nose for mysteries, who persuades him to help her investigate a series of strange goings on at the manor . . .

Who's been upending the precious rose bushes? And where did the amazing dinosaur bones dug up on the grounds come from?

It looks like the two things might be connected. But can this dog and cat detective duo solve the mystery?

Meg McLaren is an author-illustrator based in Inverness, Scotland. She has published multiple picture books, including Life is Magic, which was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize in 2017, and most recently Wee Unicorn. Watts & Whiskerton is her debut fiction series for young readers. When she's not up to her eyeballs in ink Meg can usually be found on a very long walk, in front of a TV mystery, or trying to convince her dog that it's not dinner time yet.
