Description

"Nothing and nobody stops Wilma Tenderfoot!" (If she does say so herself.)

Wilma Tenderfoot, a tiny, brash, and determined ten-year-old orphan, dreams of becoming a worldfamous detective so she can find out who her parents are. Wilma discovers that her new next-door neighbor is the renowned detective Theodore P. Goodman, and he has a new case. Wilma is set on becoming Mr. Goodman's apprentice, so with the help of her beagle, Pickle, she makes deductions, follows leads, and scouts out suspects. She's sure she'll win the famous detective over and crack the case, as soon as Pickle stops eating the clues.

With wicked humor, dastardly villains, red herrings, and a setting that would make Sherlock Holmes proud, this mystery is just like Wilma-funny, feisty, cheeky, and charming.

Praise For Wilma Tenderfoot

“Kennedy’s narrative is rambling and silly in the best possible way.”
-Booklist

“The melodrama, outlandish invention and exaggerated humor will appeal to fans of Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events.”
-Kirkus
