Editorial Reviews

Cantabrigia
Move over McGruff the Crime Dog, Upton Charles is here to sniff for clues and solve your mysteries.
Cambridge Chronicle
This dog takes a bite out of crime.
Flipkart.com
D.G. Stern's delightful series of adventures starring Upton Charles.
NewportPatch
The action-packed mysteries are intended to be "read with me" books so that parents and teachers can be involved with reading at an earlier age. Older readers can also read through and enjoy them on their own.
Entrepreneur.com
Logical deductive thinking, teamwork, paying attention to random clues to put the jigsaw puzzle together, who would think these skills could be helped and taught by a dog, even a very smart dog?
Midwest Book Review
Upton Charles will make a believer out of every reader.... As a teacher of constructive logical, deductive thought, Upton rules.
Boston Globe
Perfect for the read-to-me or the I-can-read-it myself age group.... To solve the paw-fect crime, call Upton!
Kids First!
"One of its appealing aspects is that it is a mystery, the other is that the main character is a dog detective who thinks out loud as the narrator of the story. Note, he is not a talking dog, just a dog whose thoughts we can hear."
