Dotty Detective - Book Review.

Ellie has been kept busy the last few days reading a new book called Dotty Detective.


Dotty Detective focuses on the adventures of a curious schoolgirl sleuth called Dot, and her faithful hound McClusky. 

This book is aimed at 5 to 8 year old's and is perfect for Ellie who is 8 and loves to read.

"Meet Dorothy Constance Mae Louise, or Dot as she prefers to be called! Dot loves super-sour apple sherberts, running fast and puzzles – especially if they’re fiendishly tricky. And with the help of trusty sidekick, Beans and TOP DOG, McClusky, she is always ready to sniff out a mystery. So when mean girl Laura seems set on sabotaging the school talent show, Dot is determined to find out how, and save the day…”

Dotty Detective is written in the form of a diary and reminded me of the Diary of a Wimpy kid books.....It is just the sort of book which Ellie loves....It has fantastic illustrations and kept Ellie interested as it wasn't just lots of text....


Ellie has been reading this all weekend and is more than halfway through so she obviously likes it....If she wasn't keen on a book she would just lose interest and not bother with it. She said it's funny and will read it to the end then read it again....

This book can be bought from Amazon for £5.99

  1. Even at 10 I think my daughter would love this book, as she loves the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Nice to see a detective book aimed at girls #TriedTested
