I thought there were only the Chet and Bernie books, and then I found these. Love the Granny in this one. So much fun to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars – A 4th and 5th Grade Teacher Review – June 1, 2017.
Berta Hartzell on ARF:
I love dogs, and when I find a great dog book, I always want to share. Now let me preface this by saying I am pretty particular about my dog books. The dogs cannot under any circumstance…die.

I mean it.
Spencer Quinn has the quirky ability of being able to step into a dog’s mind, and this makes these books unique and equally charming to me.
Bower, a rescued pup, becomes the hero and companion of a fiercely brave little girl named Birdie who has a nose for solving crimes and the ability of getting into some serious trouble in the process.

Add to the mix a snarky grandmother, a handful of peculiar treasures as friends, and a slew of colorful town’s people and you have Louisiana Bayou charm and mayhem on each page. The stories burst with personality.I read the first book in the series, Woof, with my 4th and 5th grade Book Club at school, and we loved it. Arf, the second book in the series, was my first summer read and just as much fun. The third book in this Birdie and Bowser series, Bow Wow, was released on May 30th, and I just ordered it for my class library!

Thrilled! In a world of increasingly yucky (a high falootin’ term for bad) and dark children’s novels, Spencer Quinn has given me hope.
