Hilarious, action-filled, illustrated mystery stories, jam-packed with crazy stuff that make kids laugh-out-loud. Dash’s adventures are written for 5-9 year-olds but appeal to the whole family. They explore universal themes of friendship, courage and taking the initiative.

A new unputdownable series from NYT Bestselling Ralph Lazar and Lisa Swerling, starring Dash, an ingenious problem-solver with fantastic friends and a bottomless backpack of brilliant gadgets.

We are on the third Dash Candoo book, it has us all in fits of laughter. My son is keen to have a designated book shelf just for his Dash Candoo book collection!
