Woof by Spencer Quinn
I don’t think Birdie’s Grammy is as tough as she pretends to be. She does let Birdie adopt Bowser for her birthday, after all (even if she grumbles about the big, slobbery dog eating them out of house and home). And maybe Birdie isn’t even as tough as she pretends to be. But these Bayou gals are definitely brave, determined, independent, gritty and, well, off the charts. Which makes Bowser’s goofiness all the more endearing. Together Birdie and Bowser solve the mystery of Grammy’s stolen stuffed prize marlin and the rumored treasure map. A good choice for mystery lovers and a great choice for dog lovers!
