Detective Paws

It was good to see that the Piccadilly branch of Waterstones, now stock many of my titles, including Detective Paws. We did that thing of putting my books to the front of the bookshelves, having a heated debate, in the middle of the children’s section, about just how far we could push it.

For anyone who missed the press release for
Detective Paws and the Case of the Golden Cat last November, here it is again.

Detective Dick Paws at your service

Author, illustrator and paper engineer John O’Leary’s new picture book, Detective Paws and the Case of the Golden Cat, is now out. The Golden Cat has been stolen from Mogworth Hall and private detective Dick Paws is on the case.


 Help him dig up the clues, sniff through the evidence and point the paw at the dodgy wrongdoers in this interactive who-done-it mystery.

 Turn the wheels, lift the flaps, open the map, flick through the mini books and use the photofit as you work alongside Detective Paws to bring the investigation to a close and ensure that justice is done.


Originally from Ireland, John O’Leary now lives and works in North London.

This is his 10th picture book for Tango Books.
