Search for clues hidden in the pictures and help Hound to solve the riddle in this delightful return to the world of Puffin the Architect.
I'm Hound! And I'm a sleuth.
I solve all types of cases.
I sniff and snuff until my nose
detects the clues and traces.
Missing jewels, stolen cars -
I always solve the crime.
My latest case arrived by post.
Ha ha - detecting time!
This gorgeous, multi-layered and engaging whodunnit by an award-winning writer has a delightful surprise at the end. Readers will love studying each action-packed illustration, poring over the details of Hound's secret passages and map, spotting the adorable animals lurking in the pictures, and finding the caterpillar hidden on every page.
Meet Hound, a brilliant detective who ALWAYS solves his case. But this latest trail of clues has him perplexed - could it be that he's missed something important?
