Description of this Book

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.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review 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. -- <i>Abi Elphinstone</i> 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. -- <i>Katherine Rundell</i> 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 *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 4 stars (out of 5)
