Little 1 reviews.. The Dotty Detective by Clara Vulliamy

Last night I put a new book on Little 1's pillow while she was at school and totally forgot I had done it by the time I picked her up from school. I had sent her up to get changed after school and realised 20 minutes later she hadn't come back down, I called out and got no reply so dashed up the stairs to see if she was okay... and found her nose deep in 'The Dotty Detective by Clara Vulliamy. 


'Meet Dorothy Constance Mae Louise or Dot as she prefers to be called!'

'Dot loves super-sour apple sherberts, running fast and puzzles! And with the help of TOP DOG McClusky, she is always up for unravelling a mystery. So when someone seems set on sabotaging the school show, Dot is determined to find out how, and save the day.'

Well with a back cover like that and a 6 year old who barely grunted when I asked of she was okay as she was so engrossed in the story, you can guess what we thought of the book.

This book is perfect for 6 year olds, Little 1 could read it with ease (it didn't take long to get through either) and she loved the way it was written like a diary, lots of mini illustrations and 'photographs' that Dot had taken and popped in the pages too.


Little 1 says ' The story was funny, I loved the secret code Dot made up with her friend Beans and I liked all the pictures in the book too. I wanted to read the whole book straight away it to find out who was being sneaky.'

N.B We were gifted our copy of the book, all views and opinions in this post are our own honest thoughts.
