Woof: A Bowser and Birdie Novel (Paperback)
Pure fun from the start! Quinn, known for his Chet & Bernie adult mystery series, brings middle readers a mystery of their own. Eleven-year-old Birdie and her new friend, Bowser, whom she just adopted from the pound, set off to solve their first mystery! Why would someone steal from Birdie’s Grammy’s bait & tackle shop? Fans of Kate DiCamillo’s Because of Winn Dixie will enjoy the special bond that Bowser & Birdie have, with tons of good humor thrown in. I’m looking forward to more Bowser & Birdie mysteries sure to come! Ages 8-12.— From Kathie
There is trouble brewing in the Louisiana swamp -- Bowser can smell it. Bowser is a very handsome and only slightly slobbery dog, and he can smell lots of things. Like bacon. And rawhide chews! And the sweat on humans when they're lying.
Birdie Gaux, the girl Bowser lives with, also knows something is wrong. It's not just that her grammy's stuffed prize marlin has been stolen. It's the weird rumor that the marlin is linked to a missing treasure. It's the truck that seems to be following Birdie and the bad feeling on the back of her neck.
When Birdie and Bowser start digging into the mystery, not even Bowser's powerful sniffer can smell just how menacing the threat is. And when the danger comes straight for Birdie, Bowser knows it up to him to sic 'em.
