My Review

A quick, fun mystery that young readers can sharpen their sleuthing skills with.

Young Mike is in his parents pet shop when Nicole, a girl he has a crush on, rushes in pleading for help in finding her missing dog.

Mike and his twin sister Maddie, along with some friends, join Nicole in her search, starting at the last place the dog was seen.

This story isn’t very long, the clues are fun and not too hard to follow, and the friendships are genuine.

I loved reading adventures like this when I was young, and I still do. This would be an exciting series with delightful characters for young readers to enjoy.

I received this book for my honest review.

Mike Adams has always been a pretty average kid. He hates homework, love sports, and spends a lot of his day bugging his twin sister Maddie—because, after all, she deserves it.

But one day, everything changes. Nic Chang’s dog goes missing.

Mike, his sister and their two best friends join forces to search for the truth and, with it, the missing pet. Will Mike and Maddie find a way to put their differences aside and save the day? And just where did that dog-gone labradoodle go?

Put your thinking caps on and prepare to find the answers in the premier installment of The Pet Shop Society, a brand new mystery series for readers aged 7-11.

      Yeah, I’d have loved this when I was younger too. Would have bugged my mom to take me to the library for more of them.

  2. Cute cover and it sounds like a fun read.
