Davey the Detective Book Review

Davey dubs himself the luckiest crow in the entire world when he finds a wonderful, shiny object. It even has a fantastic name: “paperclip.” Wow! One dark and dreary day, Davey’s treasure goes missing, and he is beside himself with grief. Luckily, he knows just how he can find out which of the forest animals is to blame for the theft. Inspired by the torn pages of a Sherlock Holmes story that were used to fashion his nest, Davey calls on the help of Sarah the sparrow to investigate the mystery and, hopefully, retrieve his prize. Together the two birds begin to collect clues. Their trail leads them straight to Mr. Bushtail, a greedy squirrel who keeps a giant store of objects in a hollowed-out tree trunk. When Mr. Bushtail refuses to cooperate, the two birds have no choice but to break into his tree house in search of the truth. Justice will prevail and treasure will be found in this intriguing tale of mystery.


When Davey finds a shiny object that he treasures and wakes up to find he has lost it, he immediately thinks it has been stolen. He engages Sarah the Sparrow to help him in his quest of finding the treasure.
As he goes on to accuse Mr Whitetail and Mr Bushtail of stealing the treasure, Davey has to eat his words when he finds that the treasure was in his nest all along.
A moral teaching that we should never jump to conclusions. The story also teaches that the best treasure is a good friend.
