Dog Den Mystery by Darrel & Sally Odgers


Dog Den Mystery
Jack Russell: Dog Detective bk 1
By: Darrel & Sally Odgers


In Dog Den Mystery, we meet Jack Russell who, along with his owner Sarge, is making a move to Doggeroo. It is not long before trouble begins, in the form of a missing treasured squeaker bone and blanket. Jack Russell realizes that he is the only one that can solve the crime and regain is stolen goods.
Though simplistic, this is a fun book and appears as though it will be a fun series. With the point of view being from Jack Russell, it is easy for the reader to view the story head on. Though I cannot say that I enjoyed the story overly well, by 6 year old daughter loved it and that is the entire purpose. Overall, it was cute and a quick read, with a few simplistic pencil drawings throughout. We will be adding the second book of the series to our library fairly soon.
ages 4-8
**76 pgs**

I wish I had had this when Nona was younger. She's soon to be 12, but she'd love the cover. She has a JRT. :)

Hi Sally! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hannah, my daughter, really enjoyed this first book. She is a huge animal lover, so this series is perfect for her. Thanks for letting me know about #10, it will definitely be making its way to our home! I am also going to check out the website with Hannah.
