Frank Cottrell Boyce reviews A Finder's Magic by Philippa Pearce

Philippa Pearce died two years ago; her last book, published posthumously, is as simple as a lullaby and just as haunting. A boy named Till loses his dog and searches for her with the help of a mysterious stranger - the Finder of the title - and two old ladies, Miss Gammer and Miss Mousy. Together they uncover a series of clues that will encourage any child to keep guessing and reading. It's part detective story, part puzzle: Miss Marple does Where's Wally?
