Wilma Tenderfoot and the case of the frozen hearts by Emma Kennedy
Blurb: A stolen jewel. Some frozen hearts. And a fish scale. Sounds like a case for Wilma Tenderfoot! Wilma Tenderfoot dreams of one day becoming assistant to the world-famous and very serious detective Theodore P. Goodman. But the last thing Mr Goodman wants is a small and slightly accident-prone sidekick – especially one with an over-friendly beagle called Pickle who keeps eating all the clues. Still, be warned – Wilma Tenderfoot may be small, but she is very determined!
Really good book for you younger readers that are into detective novels. This book is part of a series which includes 3 other books. This book has a great story to tell and will entertain you until the very end of the series. This book is for confident readers and is aimed more at girls than boys. I give it 8 out of 10 stars, please tell m if you like this book.
David Walliams has written 7 books and his 8th book has just come out. These books are great for any gender and age 7 or above. These books are cleverly written and are all very funny and some parts of the books are sad. I doesn’t matter which order you read these in as they are not a proper series but are just like a load of books written by the same author with similar titles and book covers. I give these books 10 out of 10 stars and hope you like these book as much as I did.
