When First Kids Cammie and Tessa receive a diamond dog collar for the First Dog, Holligan, they know the huge diamonds can't be real? Can they? When one diamond, then the whole collar disappears, the girls think something may be up. Especially when it comes on the heals of the disappearance of a large diamond from the nation that the collar was originally sent from. That's when they put on their detecting hats and search the White House grounds to find out the truth behind Holligan's new collar.

The Case of the Diamond Dog Collar was actually the first book I won through Goodreads' First Reads giveaway program. Since I love books of all shapes and sizes, I was excited to receive it. Originally, I planned on reading it to the boys, but as the holidays got more hectic and Teddy wanted me to start reading The 39 Clues, I decided that it was time to read it on my own.

I wish I hadn't let so much time pass, because I was doing myself a disservice. Being a relatively short chapter book, it was a quick read for me. But it was a read full of humor and surprise. I found the enthusiasm of impulsive fashionista Tessa infectious. I loved the more sensible approach that Cammie had toward the whole thing. Seeing the girls' reaction to their grandmother's budding love affair made me smile. And I loved the fact that it isn't their dad that's the president, but their mom. Seeing the father as the stay-at-home parent (or kind of close to it) was a nice change of pace for most of the kids books that I read.

The characters weren't quite as fleshed out as you would have seen in a more adult book, but it didn't bother me too much. Even without the depth that I expect from the longer novels I read, these characters definitely had some depth, character and personality.

Format: Paperback
Hooligan is a wild and crazy dog who almost creates an international incident. Afterwards, he is given a dog collar with fake diamonds from a neighboring country's president, as a token of his forgiveness. When Hooligan decides to chase a helicopter Tessa notices that one of the fake diamonds on his collar is missing. This is just the type of mystery that Tessa and Cammie like to solve. But what happens when the diamonds might be real, the suspect list includes Grandma's boyfriend and Hooligan is acting strange? The girls solve the mystery and help their mom, the president, catch a criminal. It is a book that will captivate and enthrall young audiences with its details and entertaining story line. The characters are believable and the emotions within the family are realistic. Every child will be able to relate to missing a parent who works too much or being scolded for getting dirty. This second book in the "First Kid's Mysteries Series" will be enjoyed by both boys and girls who love a good mystery.
This book is for ages 7 to10.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Literature in exchange for my honest review.
