Description - Frankie Potts and the Wicked Wolves by Juliet Jacka

Book 4 in Juliet Jacka's addictive new Frankie Potts series for readers ages 7-10.
Meet Frankie Potts, the village of Tring's number one girl detective. She has flaming red hair, a questioning mind and a very clever dog named Sparkplug. And she is REALLY good at solving mysteries.
A band of dancers with bells and blue painted faces have come to Tring, and Frankie can smell a mystery. Who are these Wicked Wolves? How come Grandma M knows them, and wants to pick a fight with them?
Meanwhile, Tinkerbell and Sparkplug's seven adorable puppies are causing chaos at Frankie's house. Grandma M is planning to give away four of them, and Frankie and Mac must make sure that they go to good homes. Ralph Peter-McGee, Frankie's arch-enemy, seems to have his eye on her favourite pup Kettle Thomson. Can Frankie stop Kettle going to the wrong home? And why are those Wicked Wolves sniffing around the puppies?
The Inaugural Tring Talent Contest is rapidly approaching, and Frankie has some serious detecting to do. But maybe not all the clues are quite as they seem ...

Author Biography - Juliet Jacka

Juliet Jacka (Author) started writing junior fiction stories when she was on maternity leave with her first daughter (who was luckily a good sleeper). Juliet's first book Night of the Perigee Moon won the 2013 Tom Fitzgibbon Storylines Award and was published in 2014 by Scholastic. Her story The Keeper of Spirit Hill was shortlisted in Tom Fitzgibbon competitions in 2011 and 2013.

As an adult, Phoebe now spends her time drawing a range of things - either on paper, or on her custom PC named 'the Millennium Falcon'.
