Meet Detectives Martin P. Sweets, Felix Danish, and Ralph Custard of the Pigeon Private Detectives. The Pigeon Private Detectives (aka the PPD) are looking forward to devouring a delectable platter of jam tarts – until the tasty treats are stolen from right under their beaks! With tummies grumbling, they’re on the hunt for clues, but can the detectives recover the tarts in time before they are all eaten – or worse – stale? As the list of suspects grows longer, our heroes wonder if they’ll ever catch the thief jam-handed.


The Case of The Missing Tarts is a punny great graphic novel for young readers. This case turns into a high profile case which makes it an intriguing story to read. We felt like detectives alongside Detectives Sweets, Danish and Custard. It had us on the edge of our seats wondering who it could possibly be.

That is what we loved about this story as it was suspenseful, delightful and funny!

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give this book 5 tarts out of 5 (none go missing in this rating)! We loved the style of the novel and the illustrations were captivating. It gave us the mystery feel and added to the setting of the story. Truly a great book to read and there are no spoilers here so you need to read it to find who did it (hehe).
