"Confusion, mischief, and silliness abound. Kids who don't always
have the vocabulary to express themselves will sympathize with this
waggish pup and his earnest desire to be understood by his human."
"Budding detectives will have the benefit of both King's discoveries and Kayla's reasoning as they piece together the clues. . . . A welcome addition to collections supporting the transition from picture books to chapter books, this title will appeal to both dog lovers and mystery buffs." -School Library Journal
