'Davey the Detective (A Bird Brain Book)' Book Tour

Davey dubs himself the luckiest crow in the entire world when he finds a wonderful, shiny object. It even has a fantastic name: “paperclip.” Wow!

One dark and dreary day, Davey’s treasure goes missing, and he is beside himself with grief. Luckily, he knows just how he can find out which of the forest animals is to blame for the theft. Inspired by the torn pages of a Sherlock Holmes story that were used to fashion his nest, Davey calls on the help of Sarah the sparrow to investigate the mystery and, hopefully, retrieve his prize.

Together the two birds begin to collect clues. Their trail leads them straight to Mr. Bushtail, a greedy squirrel who keeps a giant store of objects in a hollowed-out tree trunk. When Mr. Bushtail refuses to cooperate, the two birds have no choice but to break into his tree house in search of the truth.

Justice will prevail and treasure will be found in this intriguing tale of mystery.

**My thoughts**

This is yet another cute book in the Bird Brain series by Emlyn Chand. I like how Davey is inspired by Sherlock Holmes and hope that this may inspire children to read them on their own. I know young children love to solve mysteries. I can see them wanting to go on their own paperclip hunt after reading this story.

I also like how it teaches the lesson of "innocent until proven guilty." It also teaches kids to make amends for making incorrect assumptions and accusations against others. And then there is the spirit of teamwork, to get jobs done.
