Emlyn Chand Review – Davey the Detective!

Emlyn Chand Review - Davey the Detective!

BLURB:   Davey dubs himself the luckiest crow in the entire world when he finds a wonderful, shiny object. It even has a fantastic name: “paperclip.” Wow!

One dark and dreary day, Davey’s treasure goes missing, and he is beside himself with grief. Luckily, he knows just how he can find out which of the forest animals is to blame for the theft. Inspired by the torn pages of a Sherlock Holmes story that were used to fashion his nest, Davey calls on the help of Sarah the sparrow to investigate the mystery and, hopefully, retrieve his prize.

Together the two birds begin to collect clues. Their trail leads them straight to Mr. Bushtail, a greedy squirrel who keeps a giant store of objects in a hollowed-out tree trunk. When Mr. Bushtail refuses to cooperate, the two birds have no choice but to break into his tree house in search of the truth.

Justice will prevail and treasure will be found in this intriguing tale of mystery.

Davey the Detective is the second book in the Bird Brain Books.  This is a well thought out story that teaches lessons about things such as not jumping to conclusions and friendship.

The story is written with 5-7 year olds in mind but your middle agers will love reading this story and sharing it with their younger siblings.  The pictures are a great addition and are sure to delight readers of all ages!

Our son thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I would definitely recommend it as an addition to your child’s library.
