Barking Up the Wrong Tree: Philip Ardagh & Elissa Elwick

In a world first, prepare to meet girl & dog detective duo Stick & Fetch – published early especially for the Festival!
Author-illustrator duo Philip Ardagh and Elissa Elwick, creators of the charming Little Adventurers books, have collaborated once again to bring us Sally Stick and her shaggy French poodle Fetch, hapless detectives who leave a trail of mayhem behind them. 
Towering Philip and petite Elissa bring their tag-team stage act of storytelling, hand puppets, live drawing and general silliness to Dubai for the first time – you’d be barking mad to miss it!!
