Reviews from Around the World "Great little mystery story for children, with a feel good ending. My son loved the dog and the thought of taking the dog to school has put ideas in his head. "— Dee Ann, Goodreads
"Julia Donaldson books are a perennial favourite and I think this new one will quickly be on the list of must haves. Peter's dog Nell has a keen sense of smell and she is out solving crime all of the time!
Mondays are a special day for Peter and Nell, they go to school and Nell listens to the children read but one Monday when they arrive at school all the books have been stolen! Detective dog Nell is on the case! This is a fast paced story celebrating the amazing sense smell dogs have and the joy of books - how could I not like it? The pictures are fun and full of energy - there is a lot going on in the background - and the text is wonderfully full of rhythm and rhymes. The whole book is just joyful."— Sasha, Goodreads
