Leon Chameleon, super sleuth Private Investigator, teams up with bumptious Police Sergeant Loerie (a bird in charge of the flying squad) and bumbling Constable Mole (in charge of underground operations) to combine their natural animal abilities and knowledge of nature to solve the case of the missing canary eggs.

A humorous, animal detective story for 7-12 year-olds that is both fun and educational (without the children realising).

    Just got a lovely new review

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amusing, interesting, exciting and educational!
    March 14, 2016
    Format: Kindle Edition
    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I love mystery books now as an adult and I loved them when I was a kid too, and this book was a fabulous mystery story for kids! I pretty much liked everything about this book, I liked the title, I liked the characters, particularly the main character Leon Chameleon P.I., I liked how the author taught readers about the various animals in the book but in a natural way that fitted in with the story and didn't just list facts that got in the way of the story. I thought this story was amusing, and interesting and exciting, plenty of adventure, twists and turns!
