The Ferret's a Foot
From the Series Guinea PIG, Pet Shop Private Eye
Mr. Venezi has put up a “help wanted” sign in the pet shop. He needs someone to keep track of the animals. But more help might mean he sells more pets, and the animals will have to leave their home. Sasspants, PI— fluffy-but-reluctant detective—is on the case. She fixes the signs on all the cages, but then a vandal turns turtle into turnip and fish into knish! Are the crazy ferrets behind it? The game is afoot for Sasspants and her sidekick Hamisher!

“The Guinea PIG, Pet Shop Private Eye series continues to entertain, with cute animals, witty dialogue, and a solid mystery.” —Booklist

“The mystery, while uncomplicated and dotted with humorous moments, still allows for some basic deductive reasoning as readers search for the culprit…. Kids who have a thing for pets (which is a sizable group) and a hankering for humor will likely take to this title.” —School Library Journal
“Yue’s adorable, expressive cartoon creatures ably extend Venable’s humor…. A winning graphic story all around.” —Kirkus Reviews
