“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.” (The Case of the Missing Grandma) Love Reading 4 Kids 

“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.” ( The Case of the Missing Grandma) Red Reading Hub 

“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.” (The Case of the Runaway Biscuit) Red Reading Hub

“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.” Minerva Reads
