At the Wings & Co. Fairy Detective Agency, Emily Vole and her friends are beginning to worry. It's five months since their official opening and they still haven't had one case. Then local landowner Sir Walter Cross dies suddenly and mysteriously. The detectives suspect fairy meddling. And when Mr Rollo the tailor mysteriously loses everything and Pan Smith's wedding plans are ruined the night before her big day, they're convinced there must be magic at play. Now they have not one, but three pickled herrings to deal with! Can they solve the mystery of who is stealing people's luck before the meddling fairy goes too far?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Absolutely charming * Angels & Urchins *
Wonderfully imaginative, full of quirky humour and delightfully illustrated * Parents In Touch *
Gardner's riotous fantasy world includes a multitude of charmingly unlikely characters * BookTrust *
A quirky and whimsical read, illustrated with suitably strange and wonderful line drawings. Its oddball protagonists are engaging and it has the feel of an otherworld screwball comedy * Carousel *
Garner is a highly talented storyteller ... charmingly anarchic * School Librarian *
Very mysterious ... very funny * The Guardian Online *
Eventful, fast-paced * Teaching English (Primary Matters) *
Sally Gardner successfully combines magic and a touch of fairy tale with a contemporary feel in this charming adventure story. The story moves at a fast pace but for me the delightful characters are the most enjoyable aspect of the book. The quirky illustrations by David Roberts are very much a part of the success of this book fitting the style of the story perfectly and bringing the characters to life. The short chapters and the many illustrations ensure that the book will appeal to newly independent readers but the use of language, wit, catchphrases and world play mean that this story would work well read aloud too. Emily and her gang are great fun and this series deserves to be a success. -- Anne Thompson * thebookbag.co.uk *
Wonderfully imaginative, full of quirky humour and delightfully illustrated. * www.parentsintouch.co.uk *
this is just as good as the first book. There's so much fun and silliness here and once again David Roberts' illustrations are pitched perfectly. I think Sally Gardner has a real winner with this series. Younger readers will love it and parents won't mind reading it aloud either. Now, let's hope there's another one coming out soon. -- J E Towey * www.jetowey.com *
Absolutely charming * angelsandurchins.co.uk *
I'd forgotten about the keys with feet, which are important in this clever detective story where there are some fairies missing their wings, fairies whose identities are surprising. * NAYU'S READING CORNER *
This is a touching story that had me laughing out loud. I highly recommend this book, it is so much fun! * Bookbabblers blog *
