"Spencer Quinn speaks two languages -- suspense and dog -- fluently." -- Stephen King

There is trouble brewing in the Louisiana swamp -- Bowser can smell it. Bowser is a very handsome and only slightly slobbery dog, and he can smell lots of things. Like bacon. And rawhide chews! And the sweat on humans when they're lying.

Birdie Gaux, the girl Bowser lives with, also knows something is wrong. It's not just that her grammy's stuffed prize marlin has been stolen. It's the weird rumor that the marlin is linked to a missing treasure. It's the truck that seems to be following Birdie and the bad feeling on the back of her neck.

When Birdie and Bowser start digging into the mystery, not even Bowser's powerful sniffer can smell just how menacing the threat is. And when the danger comes straight for Birdie, Bowser knows it up to him to sic 'em.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Spencer Quinn speaks two languages—suspense and dog—fluently.”

    Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “Imagine Scout Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird setting out to solve a mystery with the aid of a charming, slobbery dog. You’ll wish you had Birdie and Bowser as your very best friends.”

    Kathryn Lasky, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Told from Bowser’s point of view, this hilarious story will elicit laughs from dog-loving kids as they recognize Bowser’s loyal yet rambunctious behavior. Reminiscent of Dug from the film Up, Bowser finds fun in every scrape he and Birdie get into, and he is devoted to Birdie from the start.”

    School Library Journal

  • “James Frangione offers a delightful performance as Bowser, a dog who was rescued from the pound by spunky Birdie Gaux. Frangione provides a medley of highly modulated voices to highlight characters’ personalities—especially the story’s villains—and to create colorful, natural-flowing dialogue. While the story’s tone is usually light, Frangione heightens the moments of suspense through pacing and well-timed exclamations. Best of all is his portrayal of Bowser. His lively intonations convey the dog’s humorous interpretations of the world and his adoration for Birdie.”
