Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 5–7—Readers are reintroduced to Tim Malt and his lovable dog, Grk, in this third mystery. The adventure begins when the British 12-year-old escapes from his mother's watchful eye at Kennedy Airport as they're about to head home. Tim has been visiting New York City with his parents and his friends Natascha and Max. The fast-paced action begins when a billion-dollar statue known as the Golden Dachshund is stolen. Years earlier, after the revolution in Stanislavia, King Jovan's parents fled to New York with it. The statue now belongs to their son, King Jovan, and Queen Rose, who have finally agreed to put it on display at the National Museum. While at the airport, Tim remembers a conversation he overheard at the museum and heads back to the city to follow up on a clue. Readers become involved with his escapades as the suspense builds, even though Tim's travels around New York by himself, without any money, seem rather implausible. He convinces the adults he meets to help him without really knowing him or what he is about. His wit and calm reasoning help him to survive as he solves the mystery for the NYPD. This story should appeal to all who love dogs and a good mystery.—Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA

Joshua Doder's GRK AND THE HOT DOG TRAIL tells of the Malts and the Raffifis, on holiday in New York City and ready to enjoy its pleasures when the statue of the Golden Dachshund goes missing at the National Museum. Max volunteers to help the police - but he's leading them to the wrong man, and it's up to Tim and Grk to follow a trail of hot dogs to the real culprit in this fun, whimsical elementary-level read.

This book is full of fun and adventure. We had just come home from a trip to NYC so my son was very familiar with many of the sights visited in the book. That made it extra fun. My son has enjoyed the whole series so far and is looking forward to the next book to come out in January.
