'Agatha Christie for kids' - the fifth in a detective agency series brimming with mystery and magic by million-copy-selling author, Sally Gardner, and illustrated by acclaimed artist, David Roberts.

The detectives at Wings & Co are in a bit of bother. There is a lost leprechaun on the loose and carpets are flying all over Podgy Bottom, as if by magic. Oh, and worst of all, Fidget has vanished on VERY URGENT business. It looks like Emily and Buster's trickiest case yet . . .

Includes Wings and Co detective case notes, character profiles and clues.

Praise for The Fairy Detective Agency: The Flying Carpet Thief

  • Operation Bunny has got what it takes to become a classic. - THE DAILY EXPRESS on OPERATION BUNNY

  • I love this book so much ... It is an enchanting book ... If you like mind-boggling adventures filled with brilliant illustrations and strange talking animals, then do not hesitate to pick up this brilliant book. - GUARDIAN CHILDREN'S BOOKS on OPERATION BUNNY

  • David Roberts's spooky illustrations have a Goreyesque detail that is perfect. The poignancy of Emily's plight is offset by a buoyancy that counters the acid wit with which her world is described ... this brims with quirky charm reminiscent of Eva Ibbotson, Joan Aiken and early JK Rowling. - Amanda Craig, THE TIMES on OPERATION BUNNY

  • Wonderfully imaginative, full of quirky humour and delightfully illustrated. - www.parentsintouch.co.uk on THREE PICKLED HERRINGS
