Kids, dogs and special dog show classes just for youngsters: what could be more fun? Try adding a psychic Saluki hound with a nose for trouble, a mysterious body that appears and vanishes at random, a dark, spooky museum with a stuffy curator, and an exciting police chase through the night!

Meet Ree Antonio, her junior handler friends Jake and Stacy, and her trouble-finding Saluki Merlin, in The Corpse That Wasn't There, the first of a new series of mysteries for young readers: The Junior Handler Mysteries. Merlin leads the kids on a merry chase and lands them in the middle of a mystery that must be solved...or Merlin may lose his life! Just who is the dead guy behind the sheds? How does his body keep vanishing and appearing in new locations? And what's up with the mean old museum curator, anyway?

The Junior Handler Mysteries are more than just an exciting adventure. Each story contains a glossary of terms and introduces young readers to the exciting world of dog shows, Junior Showmanship...and more!
