Ready-for-Chapters
Who's Got The Bunny?
Fletcher's no ordinary basset hound. In the first place, his markings form a map of the world. In the second place, his best friend is...a flea.
Fletcher and his flea pal, Jasper, have survived a lot together — life on the streets, incarceration at the pound, even a flea bath. But now Fletcher has a new home with Jill, and things are looking up. Until Jill and her best friend, Gwen, take Fletcher to school for show-and-tell, and the class's pet rabbit disappears. Everyone knows hounds and hares don't mix, and Fletcher is accused of having done the bunny in. Can he, with a little help from Jasper and Jill and Gwen, sniff out the real rabbit-napper before it's back to the pound for Fletcher?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Levy writes funny stories and loves puns. This one is no exception. It is a story told from a dog's viewpoint. A dog who has a map of the world on his body and is also inhabited by a talking flea. Fletcher, as he becomes known after his adoption from the animal shelter by Jill, has a series of narrow escapes. He is accused of harming the class rabbit during show-and-tell, but due to his genes and some help from Jasper the flea, he manages to sniff out the rabbit napper. It is a fairly predictable story, but right on target for the audience. A bit of mystery, lots of humor, increasing tension, a red herring and a final solution that makes the humans and animals all look good. Part of the "Ready-for-Chapters" series. 2002, Aladdin/Simon & Schuster,

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-Children familiar with Jill and Gwen from the Something Queer series by Elizabeth Levy will love the author's beginning chapter mystery (Aladdin, pap. 2002), illustrated by Mordicai Gerstein, featuring Fletcher, Jill's basset hound, who tells the story. Fletcher is unique the markings on his fur resemble a map of the world, and his best friend is a flea named Jasper. Jill and Gwen adopt Fletcher from the pound. The girls decide to bring Fletcher to school on show and tell day because of his markings. When the class pet rabbit goes missing, Fletcher is blamed. The brave dog leads the girls to the real rabbit-napper. A brief interlude of opening music sets the stage, preparing listeners for a mystery. Actor William Dufris does a marvelous job of infusing life into Fletcher with his intonation and pitch-perfect voice, and creates individual voices for each male character. Female characters are given unique voices by actress Christine Marshall, who jumps in without missing a beat. A perfect package.-Stephanie Bange, Wilmington-Stroop Branch, Dayton Metro Library, OH Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Elizabeth Levy says:

Fletcher Rules!

There are three things I love — dogs, mysteries, and salami. I also am fascinated and moved by the ways we love our pets and they love us. I first wrote about Fletcher, a salami-eating basset hound, in the Something Queer Mysteries more than thirty years ago. But those books were Gwen and Jill's mysteries. I always wondered what Fletcher thought about things. I love hearing from kids and visiting schools. Children from all over the world sent me wonderful drawings of Fletcher. I decided it was time for Fletcher to tell his own stories and star in his own series. But writing is mysterious. I never knew that a friendly flea named Jasper would join Fletcher. As I began these books, Jasper just started popping up and chatting. Now, Gwen, Jill, Fletcher, Mordicai, and I have a new friend. He's rather tiny, but he's a lot of fun, and I'm looking forward to more mysteries with Fletcher and Jasper and their humans, Gwen and Jill.
