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?
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.
