Overview

Upton Charles and his family are in New Hampshire for a weekend ski vacation and our canine investigator meets three Saint Bernards. But it would not be an Upton Charles adventure without a mystery. Our sleuth is a Bichon Frise (that's "BEE-shon free-ZEY"), who is quickly on the trail of a long-lost treasure map, buried gold, and the papers of Daniel Webster. The fire is warm, but the case is never cold. Come along with Upton as he considers two-hundred-year-old clues to solve the mystery in Winter Wonderland.

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?
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.

This dog takes a bite out of crime.
Midwest Book Review
Told from the viewpoint of a very special dog, Winter Wonderland promises to be a great mystery reading experience for kids ages 8-11. Winter Wonderland also can be read aloud by an adult as an exciting chapter book for a younger audience.... Upton Charles will make a believer out of every reader.... As a teacher of constructive logical, deductive thought, Upton rules.
