Overview

There are some strange new pets in Sly's neighborhood: a cat on a diet that keeps getting fatter, a fish that seems angry at its owner, and a peculiar pet named Wilson that suddenly disappears!
Only Sly the Sleuth can solve these mysteries. Grade-schooler by day, private detective by afternoon, Sly (a.k.a Sylvia) uses her sharp wits and reasoning skills to get to the bottom of these odd goings-on.
Donna Jo Napoli teams up with her son, Robert Furrow, and illustrator Heather Maione to create a heroine who is not only smart and spunky, but also tremendously funny.

Sly the Sleuth, also known as Sylvia, solves three mysteries for her friends and neighbors, all involving pets, through her detective agency, Sleuth for Hire.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-3-Young Sly forms her own detective agency to solve mysteries in the neighborhood. However, she only takes on cases that will also interest her cat, Taxi. The three cases presented here involve a variety of pets. Sly observes as well as she listens, and when she mixes in some creative problem solving, voila! Maione's pen-and-ink illustrations add plenty of personality. All in all, this is a promising start to a mystery series for beginning chapter-book readers.-Pat Leach, Lincoln City Libraries, NE Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Clear some shelf space: Young Cam Jansen has a new contemporary. Sylvia, a.k.a. "Sly," solves three local mysteries involving oddly behaved pets. She uses an uncontrived combination of sharp observation, careful reasoning, and the occasional flash of insight. Along with crafting believable "cases" for the youthful detective, the mother-and-son co-authors have some "Sly" fun here. They give their sleuth a cat named Taxi (who always comes when called), one friend named Melody, who plays the piano, and another named Jack, who is always jumping into sight. There's also a pesky four-year-old neighbor, Brian, with a distinctly slanted view of reality and a mysterious pet named "Wilson" that turns out to be a bucket full of . . . well, read and find out. Maione inks plenty of lighthearted illustrations, mostly neighborhood scenes, for this engaging series opener. (Fiction. 7-9)
