It's free and it's full of mysteries!

The newest addition to the Sleuth family
is almost four now.
After three decades of fabulous
felines--Porky, Winston, Popi aka Ploppy, Princess,
Peaches, Petosky, Perry, and Paddington--the cat
era came to an end. In came Percy, sorry,
Sir Percival, and the era of the dog.
Marian wanted a dog for the cottage, and, as J.D. has
always been mildy allergic to cats and dogs,
a resaonable compromise was a hypo-allergenic
Standard Poodle.

Paddington was the last of the cats to join the family
and the last to leave, but, alas, leave he has, to
join his siblings in the great mouse hunting
grounds of the sky. That's him by the way,
looking rather regal.

And, then...

There once was a poodle called Percy
Who showed to his toys no mercy
He bit them, he chewed them
He threw them and chased them
That wonderful doggie our Percy
-Maureen Jennings

Search for books!

You'll need a SleuthOnline account. Register here (look for the I'm new, top right corner). This will only take a minute and all you need is a name, e-mail address and password and you'll have full use of the shopping cart.

Then log-in, search for books, add them to the shopping cart, do this repeatedly, and when finished adding, click # items in cart, top right corner, and checkout. Really simple. We'll get back to you once we've had a look at your order, make suggestions, corrections (did you really mean to order the expensive British edition when a cheaper North American might do?) that might be necessary and get back to you. At that point, you have a chance to confirm that you still want the books and we'll get the order shipped out or wait for you to come collect it. Really simple. Really works well.
