YOUNG ADULT REVIEW: Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Frozen Hearts - Emma Kennedy


A stolen jewel.

Some frozen hearts.

And a fish scale. Sounds like a case for Wilma Tenderfoot!

Wilma Tenderfoot dreams of one day becoming assistant to the world-famous and very serious detective Theodore P. Goodman. But the last thing Mr Goodman wants is a small and slightly accident-prone sidekick – especially one with an over-friendly beagle called Pickle who keeps eating all the clues.

Still, be warned - Wilma Tenderfoot may be small, but she is very determined!


If you’re after a young adult quirky detective novel then this is perhaps one of the ones to keep an eye on. Its got danger, its got twists and its also got a cracking sideline in villains that just ooze out of the woodwork to go up against the islands most famous Detective Theodore P. Goodman and Kennedy really does have something a little bit special. It’s a fun read and with twists that you just don’t see coming the author herself is as good a magician as the character portrayed within. An absolute stonker of a first offering in this series and when you top it off with a small dog to accompany this determined young lady you’ll have as much fun with this tale as Theodore with his Corn Crumbles.
