If you love a good mystery or fancy yourself a bit of a super sleuth, you need to check out the latest StoryWalk® book Hound the Detective!

Meet Hound, a brilliant detective who ALWAYS solves his case. But this latest trail of clues has him perplexed - could it be that he's missed something important? As you take a walk through the autumn leaves, search for the clues and a green caterpillar hidden in each picture to help Hound to solve the mystery.

With glorious autumn-themed illustrations and a rhyming riddle that builds and builds, everyone is sure to love the Hound and this whodunnit tale! Activities to complement the story:

  • Collect your very own detective notebook from the start of the StoryWalk® and tick off the clues as you find them (Bring a pencil/pen)
  • Find the green caterpillar hidden in every picture
  • Test your observation skills on the Spot the Difference page at the end of the walk.
