Overview

Disappearing Diamonds (Adventures of Upton Charles Dog Detective) by D.G. Stern, Deborah Allison

Upton Charles is a lot like you and me. He likes to be with his family, play with his Friends and go on nice walks. Except Upton isn't

like you and me...because he is a little white dog, a Bichon Frise (that's "BEE-shon free-ZEY"). Upton is also very smart and knows

an important clue when he smells one. Our dog detective is recruited to help find the Van Camp diamonds that have disappeared from

the local museum. Join Upton as he sniffs out evidence to find a valuable missing necklace in Disappearing Diamonds.

I stumbled on 'Disappearing Diamonds' while looking for an interesting kids book. It's one of the most original, funny books I've read in years for kids or adults. A bichon frise named Upton Charles is the narrator, and the most accurate word I can find for him is endearing - and I'm not even a dog person. His homespun intelligence will resonate with kids as well as adults and, like me, you'll be looking forward to the rest of this sparkling new Upton Charles series.

I was impressed with the combination of plot, character and simplicity. The book is written in the first person present which makes it very easy reading for an early reader. The author's use of a dog as a narrator, especially such a cute dog, is wonderful. Highly recommended for 8-10 year olds.
