From Pictures to Words - a guide to choosing books for beginner readers: Rhyme


The Mystery of the Dachshund Diamonds by Keith Brumpton
Published by Orchard Books, 1995
ISBN 1-85213-886-6

For a child who likes reading comics The Mystery of the Dachshund Diamonds provides just the right mix of comic text and illustration along with the characteristic layout of traditional “chapter books” for young readers. Ten short chapters tell the funny story of Rusty the police dog and PC Andy Constable’s quest to find the thieves who are trying to steal the Daschund diamonds.

Both are on their last chance. In an effort to solve the crime they must become undercover agents or else face re-assignment. Packed with adventure and comedy this is an ideal beginner book for any reluctant reader.
