The Case of the Lost Boy by Dori Hillestad Butler
Do you like dog stories? You'll love this story then!
Open Road, an imprint of Albert Whitman and Company, and Net Galley offered me an ebook of this story for review (thank you all). It's currently available wherever you may purchase ebooks.
Jeremy Tugeau used his golden lab as his model when he drew these illustrations. They make the story even more special!
The author has written several dog stories featuring King and Kayla, but this story has King left behind at home and eventually ending up in the pound. I was beginning to worry about him but he got adopted. And his new family lives right by where his old family lived. His new owners are calling him Buddy right now, but he's still trying to find Kayla. And then he loses his new boy. Oh no! How will he help Mom find her?
This author knows her dogs and makes her tales short and full of excitement. This is written for younger readers and I'm sure they'd love the whole series. Why not buy them a good dog story today?
