In "Dognabbed", main character Doodle, the bedbug-detecting labradoodle "employee" of Josh Hunter and companion to Josh's 10-year-old daughter Molly, again grasps every situation immediately, his wry assessments of human behavior spot on the money. Adult human beings in the story stumble cluelessly and then fail to repair their regrettable mistakes. Children are imaginative and flexible enough to think outside any box and come up with obvious solutions which of course succeed, once the adults are willing to try them. Over Thanksgiving on a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains Molly has an opportunity to get to know more of her mother's side of the family while her father has to deal with challenges on his side. Molly is also confronted with serious family problems a friend of hers has. Doodle loves the woodsy environment, even giving in to a puppylike desire to chase wild turkeys. In the end, thanks to Molly and Doodle, situations are resolved with solutions acceptable to all, except perhaps the villains who don't deserve any better. The reader's sense of justice is not disappointed. Adults' bad choices are presented objectively but compassionately, and of course Molly and Doodle know what has to be done to remedy sad situations. This is a wonderful, truly marvelous book, especially for middle-grade, but actually for everyone. Buy it, read it, and then buy another one so that someone else can enjoy it as much as you did.
