Hubert Hound is security adviser down at Oak Tree Farm, and when half a dozen prize chickens go missing from the coop and show up dead in Foxy's larder, it looks like an open and shut case. However, would a professional like Foxy leave such obvious clues behind him? And who is the door to door salesman who has been selling dodgy poultry meat to the local carnivores? This very entertaining picture book presents Hubert's investigation in the manner of a detective pre-primer, with the clues neatly summarised for the children's perusal and consideration before the culprit is revealed. This would be a very good book to share with a group of beginner readers, who might enjoy the opportunity to argue their own cases.
