Kate on the Case by Hannah Peck, reviewed by Harriet

Hi i’m Harriet, I am reading Kate on the case. The author and illustrator is Hannah Peck. 
I like the front cover of Kate on the case because it’s has train tracks on it. It has train tracks because it’s set on a train. 
I like the pictures because they have  lots of detail and are very interesting with lots to see. There are also loads of them through the book. 
Kate is investigating the mystery of some missing things. Who stole the missing things and why is madam Maud so grumpy?
I like this book because I haven’t read a mystery book before so it was very exciting. I like how Roo and the tiger can talk. (did i mention that Roo is a mouse!)
Something I don’t like about it is that there are too many long words that needs explaining and i cant read it very well on my own! 

Hi, my name is Harriet and I am 6 and a half years old. I have a little sister who is nearly 4 and she loves me reading stories to her. I love to ride my bike, when I am not reading!

About the book

Young reporter-in-training Kate and her mouse-accomplice Rupert are on board a train, to visit Kate’s mum in the Arctic. But as soon as the train departs, mysterious things start happening. A packet of ginger nuts goes missing .. . A collection of gymnastics trophies are stolen .. . And some ancient scrolls disappear .. . Fellow passenger Madame Maude seems the most likely culprit, until a surprising – and delicious – twist turns the whole investigation on its head.

First in a witty two-colour chapter-book series about a bold young detective and a colourful cast of suspects, in a setting worthy of Agatha Christie.
