Rex and the Crown Jewels Robbery

Illustrated by Kate Sheppard

A hilarious picture book caper about a scruffy dog who saves the Crown Jewels from a dastardly thief.

Rex lives on Tower Green, and likes nothing better than sniffing around in juicy litter bins. But one day, the stinky bin he's rummaging in turns out to be a time machine! It takes him back to the Tower of London of King Charles II, where Rex meets spoiled lapdog Cavalier, explores the old Tower and even gets to see the Crown Jewels. But while he's admiring the crown, orb and sceptre, thieves burst in and steal them away. Can Rex save the day?

  • A charming, funny picture book featuring time travel, a dastardly villain, and a lovable canine hero.
  • Based on the real-life plot of daring thief Colonel Blood in 1671. (Although it wasn t a dog that came to the rescue!)
