”'These are fast moving tales, highly illustrated with black and white illustrations that move the stories along at a madcap pace. Young emerging readers will power through the book giving them confidence and a huge slice of fun as they read 'a proper chapter book’. Funny books for this age group are always very welcome - and this one (the start of a series) - is so well done I am sure children will lap them up” - -

‘A goofball farce… this episodic volume offers two other cases for the crime-busting birdies, and young readers will make quick work of them all. Totally coo!', Kirkus Reviews -
