Someone is snatching snacks on Signal Hill! Can Mr. Beagle suss out who? While taking a hike up Signal Hill, Mr. Beagle soon realizes that people’s picnics are being plundered! Who could the culprit be? With his nose for clues and a handy pair of binoculars, he solves the puzzle, and finds a way to encourage community and collaboration. Lori Doody’s quirky canine detective is back with another fun and charming picture-book mystery—the third in her on-going Mr. Beagle series.

About the author

Editorial Reviews

[Mr. Beagle Climbs Signal Hill's] lively illustrations are a cheerful accompaniment with their sprightly palette and snappy patterns overlaying familiar scenes (I walk this route almost every day and the background is both spot-on familiar and exuberantly heightened). [...] And again, the puzzle is resolved in a sport of sharing and community.

Joan Sullivan

A simple story set in a Richard Scary-esque St. John's. This would be a delightful book to read with a child who likes finding clues in the pictures of a book.

Jean Graham

The illustrations are distinct and instantly recognizable, and the puns throughout both the imagery and the story are entertaining for all ages. [...] This story is a great example to children of making mistakes, owning up to them, apologizing and making it right, and in turn the positive outcome that can have.

Melanie Métivier

Understated humour, precise and fine-lined artwork and a caring, close-knit community make Mr. Beagle’s story a cozy and whimsical delight.
