Recommended Reading-Dog On It by Spencer Quinn

If you like mysteries and are looking for something a little different this book is great! We are introduced to Bernie Little, a somewhat down on his luck private investigator, and his canine sidekick, Chet.
The story is told from Chet the dog’s perspective which is at times funny (when Bernie arrives home late & asks if Chet wants to go out, Chet asks “Why would that be? Just because my teeth were floating”?), insightful (Chet often comments on Bernie’s financial troubles) and sad (a series of circumstances lands Chet in an animal shelter).
Chet and his owner Bernie… are a great detective team, helping each other out of more than their share of harrowing situations in their search for a kidnapped teenaged girl.
A fun story from a unique point of view, this book highlights the special bond between dog and owner. I’m looking forward to reading the next installment of Chet & Bernie’s adventures, Thereby Hangs A Tail.
