What to expect

Join brave Kat Wolfe and her animal sidekicks in this second mysterious adventure filled with friendship, freedom and a fierce wild cat!

When a landslide on the Jurassic Coast reveals a rare ‘dragon’ dinosaur, best friends Kat Wolfe and Harper Lamb are thrilled, especially when stars and scientists come flocking to sleepy Bluebell Bay.

But after they begin investigating a suspicious death, events spiral quickly out of control for detectives Wolfe and Lamb. Worse still, Kat’s wild cat is in trouble. Can they solve the mystery – and save the cat’s life – before it’s too late?

Kat Wolfe Takes the Case is the second book in Lauren St. John’s Wolfe & Lamb series, and is illustrated by Daniel Deamo.

Critics Review

  • First-class fun!

    Hilary McKay, on Kat Wolfe Takes the Case
  • Just perfect storytelling.

    Gill Lewis, on Kat Wolfe Takes the Case
  • Lauren St John knows just how to create the perfect children’s adventure stories… another enthralling adventure… this is exactly the kind of book to encourage children’s interest in the environment and their world as the pages keep turning. Thoroughly recommended.

    LoveReading4Kids, Children's Book of the Month
  • A book that will inspire kids to be kinder to each other and to the world’s precious animals

    Abi Elphinstone, on Kat Wolfe Takes the Case
  • Hurrah for a new series from Lauren St John! It’s literary Katnip for the summer holidays — especially for dedicated pet fanciers… St John writes with apparent ease, but refuses to compromise on language while mixing modern life with old-fashioned Blyton-style follow-the-clues mystery. It’s an excellent combo. If this first invigorating book is anything to go by, St John had better start writing some follow-ups.

    Saturday Times, Children's Book of the Week
  • Everything you want from a Lauren St John book: timeless storytelling with a contemporary edge, thrilling mystery, characterful animals and tenacious children yearning to make their mark on the world.
