Product description

From best-selling author Holly Webb comes a brand new series full of mystery and intrigue following the adventures of a very determined heroine and her dog! Holly Webb fans will be thrilled to pieces to discover the adventures of Maisie Hitchins, the pluckiest little detective in Victorian London. Maisie Hitchins lives in her grandmother’s boarding house, longing for adventure. She idolizes the famous detective, Gilbert Carrington, and follows his every case. But Maisie is about to be given the opportunity of a lifetime: her own mystery to solve! In the first book in this fantastic new series, Maisie rescues a puppy in peril whilst running an errand, and adopts him. She decides to investigate the puppy’s original cruel owner, but instead gets tangled up in an intriguing plot involving stolen sausages, pilfered halfpennies and a fast-paced bicycle chase. The streets of Victorian London are never safe, but Maisie’s on the case!

    Firstly my favourite part was when Maisie found out that an old man tried to drown a dog that Maisie rescued. Maisie called him Eddie. Secondly my favourite character was George. George is a boy who worked at Harrowbys but he lost his job. But I’m so glad that he had his job back after being blamed for stealing sixpence. Thirdly I would like to say I absolutely loved this book! I think this book would be good for children that like an adventure and solving mysteries. I liked the entire book.
