About the Author

Hugh Ashton is the author of many bestselling Sherlock Holmes stories for adults. Sherlock Ferret and the Missing Necklace was his first book for children. After 28 years living in Japan, Hugh now lives in the city of Lichfield in the English Midlands, together with his wife Yoshiko (and no ferrets). Andy Boerger is an illustrator and storyteller originally from Ohio, now living in Tokyo. He has illustrated several children's books, including the popular What Does the Tooth Fairy Do With Our Teeth? and many of his own stories and illustrated essays can be found on his blog, along with dozens of pen & ink illustrations of animals and other wonderful things. His Tokyo habitat includes Feather the Ferret, a spunky creature who reminds Andy a bit of his departed friend Vinnie, who served as inspiration for the Sherlock Ferret character to both the author and the illustrator of this and other mystery tales.


"I thought this book was amazing! There was a lot of suspense, action and dialogue. I love the part where the mystery was solved and the treasure was saved! My favorite character was Sherlock Ferret. My mom says this book is perfect for my age."
Nathan, age 8 1/2 (USA)"Brilliant, didn't know what would happen next, kept you in suspense until the end!"
Phoebe, age 10 (UK)"I like the ferret books. This is the second one I have read. I think Sherlock is sometimes very silly. Moriarty is very naughty and Pigasso was very rude. I think Watson is my favourite. I very much enjoyed this and was glad that Sherlock and Watson solved the problem."
Edward, age 9 (UK)"This book was really interesting. I liked the part where they met the capybaras because they reminded me of my pet bunnies. I found myself giggling a couple of times in the beginning because they were talking about the Big Book of Poo. I thought that this story, like the rest of them, held a message, though not a big one. Some of the little mysteries made me stop and think a little. It was hard to put this story down when I had to because the way the story was told made me want to keep reading. 14 out of 10 stars."
Piper, age 10 (USA) "I like the way the story begins with Sherlock Ferret getting the message that the field mice got sick. The part I love the most is when the capybaras begged for food from Sherlock and Watson. I like animals a lot. It made the story fun and easy to read. I recommend this book for anyone."
Wesley, age 10 (Canada)
