Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Join Sam, a sheepdog who considers herself a top dog detective, for her seventh mysterious adventure. Sam is able to communicate with Jennie, the girl who lives next door, through telepathy. The bossy, junk food-craving sheepdog, Jennie, and her friend Beth solve a mystery about the mummy of a pharaoh who is said to roam the earth searching for his beloved pet dog. Readers will find much humor in the thoughts of this clever canine. Her thoughts are much as you might expect from a bored dog with too much time on her hands. This is a cute story for young mystery lovers who have always wanted to talk to their pets. Fans of the previous books will also enjoy this tale where there is just enough excitement and spookiness to keep the pages turning. 2002, Kids Can Press, $12.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Julie Eick Granchelli
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Fans of Mary Blount Christian's "Sebastian" series (Macmillan) or John Erickson's "Hank the Cowdog" books (Viking) will readily accept that Sam, a sheepdog, can communicate telepathically with 10-year-old Jenny. The seventh book in this slight and light series finds the pup bored with winter's confinement. After hearing about an Egyptian exhibit at the local museum and learning that the mummy is supposedly walking the earth looking for his white dog, Sam is sure that she is that dog. She and her human pals, Jennie and Beth, then concoct a plan to trap the mummy while eluding its curse. Readers will find a bit of slapstick humor in Sam's food preferences, which are quirky and definitely not canine. The writing is simple and the mystery is safe-not too scary, and very accessible for reluctant readers.-Jeanette Larson, Texas State Library, Austin Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
