    " Light read, easily solved. Once in awhile that's just what you want! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karen | 2/2/2014

    " This was given to me by someone who loves animals and knows I love them. She enjoys these books so along the same lines, thought I would too. And I was excited by her enthusiasm for the series. Well, I enjoyed the book for what it was - simple, afternoon read. I kept thinking it must have been written for young adults as she explains things that I don't think most adults would need explained. The mystery isn't much of a mystery. The animals talking and working on the mystery was cute, but didn't add that much to the story overall. I doubt I'll be searching out any more of these books. "
