Description

Join brave Kat Wolfe and her animal sidekicks in this second mysterious adventure filled with friendship, freedom and a fierce wild cat!

When a landslide on the Jurassic Coast reveals a rare `dragon' dinosaur, best friends Kat Wolfe and Harper Lamb are thrilled, especially when stars and scientists come flocking to sleepy Bluebell Bay.

But after they begin investigating a suspicious death, events spiral quickly out of control for detectives Wolfe and Lamb. Worse still, Kat's wild cat is in trouble. Can they solve the mystery - and save the cat's life - before it's too late?

Kat Wolfe Takes the Case is the second book in Lauren St. John's Wolfe & Lamb series, and is illustrated by Daniel Deamo.

Review quote

A story with a great sense of adventure, transporting you to that place of excitement when you can't wait to find out what happens next! * The Book Activist, Book of the Month * All you want from a good mystery - a compelling storyline, a determined lead character, heroes and villains, some intriguing animals for a refreshing change... all excellently interwoven * Parents in Touch * Kat Wolfe Investigates is the kind of book I'd have devoured as a child - lucky, lucky kids having this to read now. -- Abi Elphinstone Warm, intriguing characterisation with just the right amount of peril - not to mention a resident wildcat. -- Imogen Russell Williams * Guardian * St John is a wonderful writer... this is just the sort of thoroughly wholesome novel that should really be consumed outdoors. -- Emily Bearns * Telegraph * Full of adventure, excitement, heart and wit... Kat Wolfe Investigates is a story to delight in. -- Katherine Rundell St John's book is suspenseful in its shifting possibilities, constructed with care, scattered with information, techno-savvy and engaging in its characterisation -- Nicolette Jones * Children's Book of the Week, Times * Everything you want from a Lauren St John book: timeless storytelling with a contemporary edge, thrilling mystery, characterful animals and tenacious children yearning to make their mark on the world. * Editor's Choice, The Bookseller * Hurrah for a new series from Lauren St John! It's literary Katnip for the summer holidays - especially for dedicated pet fanciers... St John writes with apparent ease, but refuses to compromise on language while mixing modern life with old-fashioned Blyton-style follow-the-clues mystery. It's an excellent combo. If this first invigorating book is anything to go by, St John had better start writing some follow-ups. -- Alex O'Connell * Saturday Times, Children's Book of the Week * A book that will inspire kids to be kinder to each other and to the world's precious animals -- Abi Elphinstone, on Kat Wolfe Takes the Case Lauren St John knows just how to create the perfect children's adventure stories... another enthralling adventure... this is exactly the kind of book to encourage children's interest in the environment and their world as the pages keep turning. Thoroughly recommended. -- Andrea Reece * LoveReading4Kids, Children's Book of the Month * Just perfect storytelling. -- Gill Lewis, on Kat Wolfe Takes the Case First-class fun! -- Hilary McKay, on Kat Wolfe Takes the Case
