Wilma Tenderfoot is an orphaned girl who lives on Cooper Island in the Lowside Institute for Woeful Children. She dreams of escape and of becoming the apprentice of the detective Theodore P. Goodman, whose every case she slavishly follows in the newspaper.

Her chance comes when she is sent to skivvy for an eccentric old woman who happens to live next door to Theodore P. Goodman himself. In her enthusiasm to help him solve the mystery of the Frozen Hearts she becomes mixed up in all kinds of off the wall and highly dangerous escapades.

Wilma is an appealing heroine and the book is an amusing cross between Lemony Snicket's 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' series, in which terrible things happen in a witty manner to resourceful children, complete with dictionary definitions of complex ideas and words, and Sherlock Holmes.

There is a lot of very daft humour in this book, such as people with intensely smelly feet, people who wish to name jewels after pickled onions and size obsessed evil villains, which means it will appeal to children hugely and make them laugh out loud. And enough gruesome moments with autopsies, death by poisoned blow pipes and buckets of brains to make them shiver deliciously. I look forward to the next in the series.

I am a big fan of Emma Kennedy's anyway after The Tent the Bucket and Me which nearly gave me a hernia. I read this with my ten year old and we both loved it - more please! but also more grown up books too! Just write more really - and quickly! No pressure obviously.

I read this book with my 9 year old daughter. We both enjoyed it and she tells me she can't wait for the next one, so brownie points for me with this choice. Personally I found it fun to read, as other reviewers have said - a tad reminiscent of Lemony Snickets' 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' but still its' own book. I haven't anything else by the author but on the strength of this book I'll be getting more from her to read with my youngest. Good Fun.

I really warmed to Emma Kennedy's central figure in this easy-to-read story. Wilma is a delightful little girl, trying her hardest and not always getting things right. The story galloped along and the other bit players all had instantly distinguishing characteristics. As a would-be detective, I look forward to reading of her further adventures and wish her every success in her quest.

Wonderfully written, well paced and full of excitement.Despite being a destitute Wilma manages to tag along with famous detective. It's her determination and troublesome nature which ultimately helps her assist in the solving of mystery. My daughter aged 12 enjoyed it much more than me and is eagely looking forward to another in the series

Ten year old orphan Wilma Tenderfoot wants to be a detective, and she has all the right traits, being funny, feisty, cheeky, charming and, above all, determined. Wilma lives in the Lowside Institute for Woeful Children, supposedly being looked after by the unpleasant Mrs. Waldock of Howling Hall. Wilma discovers that her new next-door neighbor is the renowned detective Theodore P. Goodman, and he has a new case. Wilma wants to become Mr. Goodman's apprentice, and with the help of her beagle, Pickle, she makes deductions, follows leads, and scouts out suspects. She's sure she'll win the famous detective over and crack the case, as soon as Pickle stops eating the clues. There's murder, mystery and missing jewels, giving the book the air of a Poirot TV episode. My daughter, aged 16, enjoyed Frozen Hearts, although being older she did prefer the 'Young Sherlock Holmes' series of books. She thought the book would would suit 9 to 12 year olds, and that it was particularly girl friendly.

There's now a few books in the Wilma Tenderfoot series: Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Frozen Hearts (published 2009), Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Putrid Poison (2010), Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Fatal Phantom (November 2010), and Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Rascal's Revenge (2011). They are aimed at kids aged 9+. Author Emma Kennedy is an actress and writer who has appeared in many award-winning comedy shows including Goodness Gracious Me and The Smoking Room, and she has written for 'Tracey Beaker' and 'Kerching' on CBBC.

Thirteen year old girl laughed all the way through it and couldn't put it down. She devoured the entire series and loved them all. Maybe not as 'edgy' as some modern books but not all thirteen year olds want to read about boy bands. She's a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, so this was a nice modern detective alternative. She loved the fact that it featured a 'girl' detective. Delivered very promptly.
