Wilma Tenderfoot (small but determined - and slightly accident prone - assistant to the greatest living detective, Theodore P. Goodman) and her beloved beagle, Pickle, are on their most cracking case yet! The whole of Cooper Island is under threat, Mr Goodman has more on his plate than even he can handle, and Wilma is on the cusp of solving the conundrum of her birthright. But things always always get worse before they get better (everyone knows that!) - so hold onto your hats, take out the mansize tissues, and get reading...
Emma Kennedy studied English at Oxford, but it was there that she fell into Comedy - writing and performing in university sketches and taking a disastrous show to the Edinburgh Fringe. Emma then started work in television, appearing on programmes such as The Big Squeeze with Mel & Sue and Loose Women, and writing for things like Late Lunch, and Radio 4 and 5. Her awards are too numerous to count (the Comedy Lounge Best Actress Award; Sony Awards for her Radio writing), and she's been in an Utterly Butterly advert. Since then her writing and acting highlights have been: My Family, Big Brother's Little Brother, Goodness Gracious Me, Tracy Beaker and Katy Brand's Big Ass Show. Emma's hilarious holiday memoir (for adults), The Tent the Bucket and Me was published with great success. Emma's extensive comedy training, however, has all been building to this pinnacle the writing of children's books!
