Fish You Were Here
From the Series Guinea PIG, Pet Shop Private Eye
The animals in Mr. Venezi’s pet shop are used to how forgetful he is. Then he hires the perfect assistant, Viola. She does her job so well that Mr. V hardly needs to be there. In fact, one day, Mr. V doesn’t come back at all! But then Viola starts ignoring the animals. Has Mr. V given the pet shop to a villain? Or is some other mystery afoot? Sasspants, PI—fluffy-but-determined guinea pig detective—and junior detective Hamisher the hamster—will soon fish out the answers!

“Venable and Yue have concocted another winning entry in the cute Guinea PIG, Pet Shop Private Eye series.” —Booklist
“Venable and Yue’s Pet Shop Private Eye graphic series continues to charm. Yue’s adorable pet-shop fur (and scale) people are just as expressive as their human counterparts, and Venable’s gentle mystery and delightful, dry humor will extend Sasspant’s fanbase…. Great graphic tales for young readers and animal lovers; long may Sasspants detect!” —Kirkus Reviews
