Totally contemporary but classic in feel, the new animal series from the million-copy-selling Jenny Oldfield is full of humour and adventure for confident young readers.
Adorable animal antics from bestselling author Jenny Oldfield, about cousins Lily and Lexi and their animal problem-solving agency.
No animal - or animal-shaped problem - is too big or small for Lexi and Lily, known as 'Muddy Paws,' the animal experts.
There's two exciting developments in the seaside down of Mellingham - the local show, where animals can compete for prizes, and the fact that it's home to Luke from the nation's most famous boy band, Up Front.
Luke wants to enter Madcap, his boisterous pup, in the show - but he is uncontrollable. Lily and Lexi are determined to help, but time is running out. How can they avoid disappointing Luke Muddy Paws will find a way! Includes gorgeous illustrations by Paul Howard, illustrator of classics such as THE OWL WHO WAS AFRAID OF THE DARK and THE BRAVEST EVER BEAR.
