Overview

A human hand is unearthed at the property of Hank Turner, a local farmer in Jerseyville, Ohio, where Emmy Budd and her adventurous friend T.J. Blake, live. Hank Turner, a good friend of Emmy and T.J.'s, is under suspicion for murder and mutilations of a hired man whom he threatened and fired several weeks earlier. A developer and a newcomer has purchased the Turner farm with plans to turn it into a roadside tavern. Emmy and T.J. keep their ears to the ground as they pretend to help out while gathering information on the proposed tavern. When Emmy discovers a sudden appearance of animal bones in the excavation of the Turner farm after a torrential rain, the game is afoot and Emmy and T.J. set off to uncover the truth. Along the way, the tween detectives are joined by a scruffy stray dog appearing at strange times and strange places, whom T.J. names Harry. Harry tags along with the kids on their many trips to the 'gravesite,' leading Emmy and T.J. to a nefarious secret. Together, the three sleuths struggle to save the town, and Hank Turner, from a greedy opportunist.

The Real Dog is Harry is the third book in the series of Emmy Budd. I had the pleasure of reading the first to and donated them to my local school library so others could enjoy this wonderfully crafted series. This book like the predecessors, has mystery, believable characters, fun, entertainment, and a literary quality much like the Nancy Drew series. I highly recommend this not only because I enjoyed it, but because I know kids will love this too! As a teacher I look for books that differ from the paranormal rage all the kids are into nowadays. I like this series, because the characters feel real, the time and setting are both also real and the story uses critical thinking skills that are good as exercise tools for the young minds of readers. I hope to read more in this adventurous series which has been very entertaining before bed. Reviewer Ami Blackwelder, author of The Day The Flowers Died Hot Gossip Hot Reviews
