This is a collection of three wonderful short stories. Each one was beautifully written and engrossing. Detective Nosegoode truly is a great role model for children. He is smart, friendly, hard working and passionate. Not to mention a dog lover! Which is always a plus! Marian is positively remarkable in his story telling. He manages to combine elements of comedy and mystery so seamlessly it almost seems like its effortless! If you wish to introduce the little minds of our generation to the world of detectives and intrigue, then The Detective Nosegoode Series is the way to go!

Such a charming little adventure that I shan’t waste by giving too much detail! I will definitely have to read the others! Absolutely adore Cody and Ambrosius! Kids and big kids alike will love it. Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional.

I have to admit that I adore this cute series. I love the talking dog and I love even more that he's not even a main plot point usually. It's almost as if he's just one of Nosegoode's friends to help him talk through the crimes and figure them out. This particular book in the series is the first that's had multiple cases and this lends itself to those beginning to read chapter books even moreso than the others. Kids in that age group do struggle with their attention span even if they don't have some sort of disability so it's great to see books catered to them. It's also free of language, sexual content and most violence although there is a short fight sequence in this one but nothing involving any sort of gore. I very highly recommend it. I would like to thank the publisher, author, and Netgalley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

I read this title as standalone and now would be delighted to read the rest of the series! Kudos to the translator for introducing such a gem to the English-speaking audience, and certainly to Pushkin Press as well. Lively and engaging stories that had me chuckling for most part. I absolutely enjoyed it and will get my own copy when it comes out. I am also looking forward to more of the author’s works being available in English. In the meantime, join Detective Nosegoode and Cody in their exciting adventures!

Great children’s story. This will surely sparkle their immagination.

I enjoyed this sweet and fun early chapter book which has three mysteries featuring the detective and his dog. It would make a great book for early/mid primary school children - either to be read out to them or as a book for them to try on their own if they're more confident readers. This is definitely the easier end of that spectrum but it's still a lot of fun. I haven't come across the series before, but I'd happily read more and will be adding this to my list of books to buy for children as gifts.

This is the most brilliant series of sweet detective stories - I read it to my class and they loved the characters and the plot twists. I love to share translated fiction with them to open their eyes to countries around us and this really inspired their hunt for more books on a similar theme. They loved reading a story that helped them to see similarities with them and the world around us and were amazed how well it had been translated. We'll definitely be reading even more books from this author and this publisher - thank you!

I was sent a copy of this book in return for my independent honest review. What a lovely little collection of three stories. I had not come across this series before and love the talking dog. Great stories to read aloud to younger primary children. Well translated into English. Sure my little Grandaughter will love this one

There were three short mysteries in the book. The stories were incredible and cute! To solve the mysteries, the detective had to be very smart and conscious which is what kept my attention the most. All the three mystery stories were solved so logically. There were many challenges that tested the intelligence of both detective and his friend, Cody. This little talking dog was excellent in two of the stories. I love the relationship between Cody and Detective. They were more like friends and partners in solving the mysteries than a master and his dog. Cody’s sharpness and mockeries were hilarious. I enjoyed his speeches in this book. This is an amazing book full of adventurous mysteries that kids would love to solve with smart Detective and his witty talking dog.

Children and their parents will love the three amusing and clever mysteries contained in Marian Orton’s third volume in this series, which features a brilliant police detective with a savvy, talking dog named Cody. The pair work together to solve crimes, and the dog is nearly his master’s equal. As with the classic Encyclopedia Brown series, readers can match wits with Nosegoode and Cody and see if they, too, can crack the three cases in this book. The book is beautifully translated from the Polish and boasts charming illustrations. Even though this is the third in the series, I was never at a loss, and I believe the books can be read in any order. In the interest of full disclosure, I received this book from NetGalley and Pushkin Press in exchange for an honest review.
