fabioFabio the World’s Greatest Flamingo Detective and Mystery on the Ostrich Express by Laura James, illus. Emily Fox. Pub. Bloomsbury, 2019.

While traveling on the Ostrich Express from Laloozee to the Coral Coast, Fabio the World’s greatest Flamingo detective and his sidekick Gilbert the Giraffe discover a ruthlessly planned crime.

Zazie the Fox is wearing the famous Laloozee Ruby around her neck and when it is stolen I thought aye aye, this is a fit up. Am I right?

Well known thief Janice the Claw is on the scene with her band of Hyenas but all is not as it seems. Fabio with his Hercule Poirot like perceptions is nobody’s fool.

Nice tongue in cheek stuff from Laura James but it is Emily Fox’s superb illustrations that enhance the mystery and the fun of this  novel for newly confident readers. Older readers will love the fun.

The first novel The Mystery of the Missing Hippo is also reviewed on this blog
