Operation Itchy by Jeanne Willis

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Itchy fleas have taken over the world, and readers are called on to help solve the mystery in this tongue-in-cheek caper starring a slightly bumbling canine spy and featuring several pullout clues.

It all starts with a headline in the Daily Dig: "Megafleas Attack! Can We Beat the Itch?" It¹s a r-r-rough time for dogkind, but luckily Secret Agent Barker — the only flea-free agent around — is hot on the trail, sniffing out clues. Who is behind this pesty crime? Is there a cure that will put the deep freeze on these nasty fleas? Readers are implored to help Agent Barker as he digs up evidence to solve the itchy mystery — with the help of foldout newspapers, maps to pore over, letters to open, a file full of pictures, and many more novelty surprises.
