Meet Sally Stick and her dog (and best friend) Fetch. Together, they're Stick and Fetch: Detectives. A girl. A dog. A detective agency.

Sally loves nothing more than investigating a good mystery - and her shaggy canine companion Fetch loves nothing more than to be at her side when she does. There's just one small problem: they always gets the wrong end of the stick! The hapless pair remain undeterred, however, dashing from one crime scene to another on their bicycle, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake ... yet always emerging blissfully unaware. A fun, madcap trio of stories featuring two lovable heroes with a LOT of hair.
