WOOF, by Spencer Quinn

The story: For Bowser and Birdie, it’s love at first sight. He’s a dog, she’s a kid, and together they tackle the mystery Big Jack, a stuffed fish stolen in broad daylight from Grammy Gaux’s fishing and tackle store. Good thing Birdie is a stubborn investigator, and good thing Bowser has a “nose” for clues–really! Bad thing? The bad guys are on the trail of something big, and they have no intention of letting a kid and a dog get in the way. But they’re about to find out that it’s never a good idea to underestimate your opponent because of their size–or their fur!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Anyone who likes dogs will love this one! Bowser will remind you of Dug in the Disney movie “UP”–his life is mostly about food, smells, running around…and Birdie. It’s the last thing that makes him a great partner when Birdie turns detective, and it’s those great big teeth (used only as a last resort) that makes him the muscle while Birdie provides the brain. A really fun read for both dog and mystery lovers!
