Beginnings (More)


October 7th, 2018 Posted 7:58 am

On Sundays we’ve been doing beginnings – all the Peter Abrahams books in chronological order, including those written under the Spencer Quinn pen name. Here from 2015 – #33, WOOF, first in the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series (available to adults with fake ID). This is actually the second middle-grade series that Pete’s done, the other being the Echo Falls series (covered in earlier editions of Beginnings).

[Utterly charmed by a spunky girl and her charismatic canine, mystery fans will find themselves looking forward to a return to the little bayou town of St. Roch.”
– Kirkus Reviews]

Two humans stood outside my cage, a white-haired woman and a gum-chewing kid. Gum-chewing is one of the best sounds out there, and the smell’s not bad either. I liked the kid from the get-go.

They gazed in at me. I gazed out at them. The white-haired woman had blue eyes, washed out and watery. The kid’s eyes were a bright, clear blue, like the sky on a cloudless day. I hadn’t seen the sky in way too long.

“How about this one, Grammy?” the kid said.

Here’s something interesting – a review of WOOF (first in the Bowser and Birdie middle-grade series) from the Amazon page. It’s by Orson Scott Card, writer of ENDER’S GAME:

“First off I really liked the Birdie and Bowser novels you wrote and I think you should make another book. Since your previous books are Woof, Arf, and Bow Wow I think you should make another one called Bark, since a dog barks. Thank you for reading this please right back.”

[“Right back” – perfect! One of those wonderful found locutions.]

5.0 out of 5 stars  – Chet and Bowser – Aug. 10, 2018.
on ARF:
I’ve been a little down this week and then I had an idea – Chet and Bowser. I’ll read a Chet book and then a Bowser book. Of course, Chet wins out because he has more books.(I think he’d like the whole winning part.) Anway, thanks for your wonderful books. They really have given me a boost this week.
