Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
This paperback is the first in the series titled "Jack Russell: Dog Detective." Jack belongs to Sarge and is smart enough to solve some cases of his own. Jack narrates this ingenious story about objects that go missing. When an old boot disappears from the garden, Jack is not too concerned. But when his treasured blanket, his squeaker bone, food, and feeding dish turn up missing, Jack is determined to find the culprit. At first he believes it is the big dog named Red who introduces himself over the garden fence. In an effort to catch the thief, Jack sets up a dognapping that goes wildly awry. Humorously written and including clever extras like "Jack's Maps" and "Jack's Facts," youngsters will certainly enjoy this tale. The simple black-and-whitesketches are a great addition to the whole package.

My son and I read this book together when he was about a quarter of the way through first grade. Some of the words were still challenging to him at that time, but he still enjoyed it. It has lots of humor that kids understand, and a few laughs that were a little above the first grade audience. We read this book again 1/2 through second grade and my son breezed through it. (It's a little too easy for most second graders I think). We read this book start to finish both times, so as a warning, don't pick it up fifteen minutes before bedtime because your child will likely be staying up late to get through the whole thing. I didn't really want to quit reading either. We both recommend this book.
