About book: "A very fine mystery - there's more than meat on this rubber bone!"Book twelve in this series, was first published in 1954, and for me, it stands the test of time!The Five Find-Outers: Fatty, Pip, Daisy, Larry and Bets - along with Buster, the dog, are soon on the trail of the thieves! The Lorenzos, tenants of Tally-Ho cottage, have vanished - just leaving behind their precious poodle, Poppet, with Mr and Mrs Larkin.A priceless old picture is discovered to be stolen from a famous gallery.Fatty needs to use all of his skills in the art of disguise, in order to find out information, clues and possible suspects! There are some really good characters in this story. Goon, the hapless village policeman, is once more struggling to keep up with the shrewdness of Fatty, and the other find-outers!After some interesting and amusing encounters, the breakthrough finally comes when Bets makes an innocent and of-the-cuff remark about the sudden change in behaviour of Mrs Larkin, in respect of dear Poppet! From that moment, going forward, there's no stopping Fatty, as he finally figures it all out - with the aid of a relaxing and thought provoking warm bath!I found this story quite clever. It was not obvious to me, until quite close to the end, who the real perpetrators were! A very enjoyable read. A very good book for children that love to read an entertaining mystery. Recommended.
