  1. I love to read mysteries and think this sounds fun based on the title alone. The cover is super cute and would make me pull it from the shelf. I added it to Goodreads.

  2. Eee, that dog looks adorable. Not really a book for me, though :) But looks lovely. Thank you for sharing. <3

  3. Kids love mystery books and I'm intrigued that the author is so young. Sounds like a winning combination. Thank you for sharing. I know three little girls who'd love this book.

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
