Praise for the book
‘The fur certainly flies in this fast-paced adventure as author and illustrator Shoo Rayner delivers dog-flavoured fun and frantic antics on the road to collaring the thuggish thieves. And with the bonus of a special art lesson at the end of the book, Walker’s adventures look set to run and run.’ Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Post
‘This is a zany adventure that every young dog-lover (or mystery-lover) could want; notorious bad guys, an unsolvable mystery, dramatic and madcap chase scenes, worried parents, a flummoxed police force and hero dogs! Walkers’ unique gift mystifies everyone around him, but gives him the ultimate advantage in solving this crime. He is bold, brave and not afraid to take chances because he knows he has strong allies, even when the going gets really tough. A fast-paced plot peppered with wonderful word-play makes this a story that is so much fun to read! You’ll laugh and gasp and stay on the edge of your seat. Thrilling, funny and absolutely delightful book for young competent readers!’ Mary Esther Judy, FallenStar Stories blog
