Dixie O’Day and the Great Diamond Robbery


Dixie has been saving so that he and Percy might take a luxurious break at Brightsea’s Hotel Splendide. After dusting mothballs from the dinner jackets, and giving the car a good spruce up, they’re off!

Percy’s delighted that super celebrity Peaches Miaow is a hotel guest. However, the pair’s attention is diverted on an afternoon stroll, when Dixie rescues a walker washed into the sea by the stormy winds!

Little do Dixie and Percy realise that their two new acquaintances’ worlds will collide in a cat burglary at the Hotel Splendide, of epic and sparkling proportions! Yet again our heroes have their work cut out to save the day!

Dixie O’Day and the Great Diamond Robbery‘, like the other titles in the series, is carefully plotted and knowingly characterised. The steady familiarity, quality of language, pace and structure is just the ticket for readers keen to build momentum, skill and reading experience. ‘Dixie O’Day and the Great Diamond Robbery’ is another shiny example of super skilled children’s writing.
