Please enjoy listening to this thrilling British detective caper.
When Cruft's Best of Breeds Champion mysteriously disappears from his enclosure, the finger of suspicion points at the owner of a rival kennel.
Although Somerset police find the missing Scottish terrier's dermal tracker, they cannot find further evidence of a crime. Having no proof, they are unable to do anything and drop any investigations.
The other dogs call in Ratchet and Stench, and even though they uncover clues that suggest a brutal murder, the animal sleuths aren't convinced.

Brilliant for Kids (of all ages!)
To any of my friends with kids, it's a must... Mine were hooked; and just had to know what would happen as the story progressed.
They're all fun, but I like the Somerset (Zumerrrzet) Badger "Ratchet"
Even though his voice is very deep and distinctive - not neutral like many impressionists - he manages to give all the characters a distinct and appropriate sound... Pearl's especially entertaining.
If you have a problem... if no one else can help... and if you can find them... maybe you can hire... Ratchet & Stench!
Ideal, contemporary storytelling.
Don't Judge a Book by its Cover!
As long as they had kids (and quite probably if they didn't)! A manageable length, my kids took it in 2 hits. Funny, not glaringly obvious either and the characters are very different and all fully-formed.
We loved how we were genuinely concerned at the halfway point, and that the ending was only similar in parts to what was predicted/expected. A perfect balance of making you think without losing the younger audience.
Having heard a more "grown-up" work read by him, this actually demanded much more of him in terms of voices, ages, species and accents! A lot of work, executed brilliantly :D
Yes! But, for the kids' sake I couldn't listen to the other half before they were ready for it too.
I titled this review "Don't Judge... Cover" as the book jacket/graphic isn't nearly as cool or "grabbing" as this most excellent tale deserves...
