Ian Whybrow has clearly lost none of his talent in the seemingly age-long gap between Little Wolf's third adventure and this worthy successor. Topical and humorous, this book sees Little Wolf hunting for Mr Twister in a desperate attempt to get Uncle Bigbad back, which (of course) means lots and lots of investigating and trail-following not entirely unlike the magnificent quest to regain little baby bruv Smellybreff in 'Little Wolf's Diary Of Daring Deeds'. It's excellent...

`Forest Detectives' is absolutely excellent and I would recommend it, despite the fact that it is, actually, for the little kids that are aged between 4 - 8, to any cheeky child that needs a real good giggle or any pleasant parent that needs a cheerful chuckle. I really enjoyed it and I think that you, your youngsters (if you have any), your parents and really your whole family, will get great pleasure from reading this fantastic fiction, perfect paperback, well overall brill book. It is the fourth book in the series and is very good. It is about more adventures at the former `Cunning College' lead by Uncle Bigdad, the former `Adventure Academy' lead by Little Wolf and Yeller Wolf and the former `Haunted Hall for Small Horrors' also lead by Little Wolf and Yeller. But this time, the building is a Forest Detective office and Little Wolf, Yeller, Stubbs Crow (from the `Adventure Academy' book) and Normus Bear (from the `Little Wolf's Haunted Hall for Small Horrors' book). I really, really, really, really enjoyed this book and I think that you'll too but only if you've got a superior sense of humour.
