OK forages 9 to 12 HA I am apparently going through my second childhood since my age numbers added together equal 11 and I laughed as any dog owner would a fun diversion with some mystery thrown in Will read more!
If you love dogs and like detective stories this is the book for you. The author's voice of Chet, the dog, is thoroughly delightful. Just watch your dog, or even other dogs, and Chet's thoughts make perfect sense. The mystery part of the story is a little thinner but still enjoyable.
I almost ditched this book on the first chapter. How cutesy is a talking dog? I'm glad I didn't. It's exciting and suspenseful and I was admiring of an author who manages to have his human protagonist solve a mystery when his dog turns up clues but is unable to communicate with his human hero. I really enjoyed this book.
