Have you completed the summer reading challenge to read a book narrated by a dog? I really loved Woof by Spencer Quinn. This story begins at the dog pound. Our hero is in a cage being looked over by a little white haired old lady and a gum chewing eleven year old girl. Soon he has a new name, Bowser, and a home with Birdie and Grammy. Grammy runs Gaux (pronounced GO) Family Fish and Bate in Louisiana. They return to find someone has stolen Black Jack, a stuffed marlin, that may or may not have had a treasure map hidden behind his right eye. Bowser and Birdie are soon hot on the trail of cracking the case. I recommend this delightful mystery to readers in grades three to six. If you haven’t signed up for summer reading yet, drop into your local branch and join the fun.
