Genuine Teacher Re Bowser and Birdie

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.

A Language-Lover’s Delight, October 7, 2013
I am a retired English teacher, and love the English language. What could be better than an interesting adventure told by a dog named Chet who has more muscle than brains! He rides shotgun for his owner, detective Bernie Little, who converses with Chet mostly in puns and idioms which Chet puzzles over but never understands. For instance, someone tells Bernie he is “wet behind the ears”. Well, Chet examines Bernie’s ears, finds them dry, and then licks the closest one.” Now it’s wet,” he thinks. This stuff goes on and on. There is also a lot of excitement as the duo try to find a missing man in the deep South, and end up in the Gulf more than once. You will love this book!
