Mike Adams has always been a pretty average kid. He hates homework, loves 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.
We received this book as part of a review blitz for an honest review.
I was kind of wondering how K would have enjoyed this book. One being it is a chapter book and second there are no pictures. We read a chapter a night and there are only 8 chapters so it only took us 8 days to finish it. K was okay with it being a chapter book and he said he thought it was funny how the dog escaped. I liked the little lesson within the story about lying and how you should be honest.
Mike and sister Maddie really don't get along being as they are siblings but they decide to put their differences aside and a help not only a friend but a girl that Mike has a crush on find her dog. Where exactly did Nic's dog go? Will she ever be able to find it? We get to see how thinking skills are put to use on solving the missing dog, which I think it was good for K to see that sometimes you have to think outside of the box to get your answer.
After the mystery is solved all five friends realize they do make a pretty good team and decide to set up their own club which is named The Pet Shop Society.
I recommend this book to the young kids around ages 7 on up if they like really neat mysteries that are not too complicated.
