A Hugh Dunnit Mystery: Taking Shelter

Hugh Dunnit may be a schoolboy, but that doesn't stop him from cracking the toughest cases. Like the case of the shredded maths homework. Sure, lesser minds might collar Hugh's new dog, Shelter. But Hugh knows there's more to sniff out. Working through the suspects, Hugh digs up a bigger mystery: just where does Shelter come from?

A brilliantly funny detective story with comic-book art throughout by Lee Cosgrove.


"Boasting outrageous puns and comic-style artwork, this hilarious hardboiled crime caper is ideal for 7+ readers who like shorter, highly illustrated fiction"
Guardian, Best Books of the Season

"A wonderfully wacky crime caper with vibrant comic book art"

"A wonderfully silly crime caper packed to the brim with jokes and wordplay... Hugely appealing cartoon style illustrations by Lee Cosgrove mean that even less confident readers will gobble this up as quickly as Shelter would herself"

"Perfect for less confident readers... It is also great fun to read aloud with a parent…who will chuckle at the jokes just as much as the children will!"
Books for Keeps

"With witty one-liners and daft puns... this fabulously funny tale is ideal for newly confident, independent readers... hilarious black-and-white illustrations combine with dynamic comic-strip artwork, to provide an amusing visual narrative to accompany the humorous text"
