By Jane Clarke & illustrated by Loretta Schauer

Sky Private Eye is Fairytale Town’s cupcake baker supreme, BUT when trouble arises or a mystery needs to be solved the characters of Fairytale Town know who to call: Sky Private Eye! With her detective backpack and Bake It Better Recipe Book always at hand, Sky jumps on her scooter and whizzes off with a yum, yum, yum, vrum, vrum, vrum, to save the day in Fairytale Town.

The Book Activist
“A lovely series . . . Sky Private Eye is a thoroughly enjoyable read, bringing to life classic fairytale characters in a new and brilliant way. A very accessible font and clear narrative makes this a great book for fledgling readers to try themselves, as well as being a good story to read aloud. . . The wonderful illustrations are lively, colourful and perfectly capture the tone of the story . . . All in all, it’s a great story to have on your bookshelf and sure to be a hit with aspiring bakers and fairytale fans alike.”

Love Reading 4 Kids (The Case of the Runaway Biscuit)
“Baking, detection and fairy tales are all whisked together in this appealing story to make a tasty picture book… A busy, action-packed story that puts an original spin on the world of fairy tales.” 

Love Reading 4 Kids (The Case of the Missing Grandma)
“Baking, detection and fairy tales are all whisked together in this appealing story to make a tasty picture book… A funny, lively spin on a traditional fairy tale.”

Red Reading Hub (The Case of the Missing Grandma)
“The tale’s telling is terrific fun and with illustrations by rising star, Loretta Schauer, that are full of hilarious details, this series looks set to be a winner.”

Red Reading Hub (The Case of the Runaway Biscuit)
“The recipe is akin to the previous case: cupcake baking, a deft move on Sky’s part and a thoroughly satisfying finale. Whether or not you met Sky in Sky Private Eye and the Case of the Missing Grandma, then do so now. The chief ingredients: Jane Clarke’s toothsome telling and Loretta Schauer’s appetising artwork, wield their magic again.”

Minerva Reads
“Puts a whole new spin on the classic fairytale … The illustrations are bright and appealing – leaving little white space – and provide plenty of visual literacy, being busy and full of items to peruse. The idea is very much for the reader to be his or her own detective, deciphering what is different from the original fairytale, and predicting what might happen. The book was devoured by my testers here, who definitely wanted more.”
