About the Author

Suzanne Selfors is the author of the Imaginary Veterinary series, the Smells Like Dog series, Fortune's Magic Farm, To Catch a Mermaid, and many other books. Rumor has it that she dreams of becoming a famous pirate and ruling the seven seas. Unfortunately, her loyal companion, Skylos, does not like to get his paws wet. So until they find a really good doggy wet suit, they are confirmed landlubbers.

I really like how the book gets people who have no idea about treasure hunting to think about it a little. I liked that the book wasn't written only for those that enjoy and understand treasure hunting. I thought there was a good blend of humor, action and a lot of different stuff. I'm hoping the next book is 'Smells Like Temples'. I hope that this review was helpful. A must read!

My fourth grader loves the characters and the crazy situations they find themselves in. Funny & witty - would recommend for fourth & fifth graders who love adventure, dogs and a bit of the fantastical.

This is the third book in the Smells Like Dog series. I purchased it for my fifth grade son. Once he picked up the first book in the series, he couldn't put it down. This child is NOT a natural reader, so this alone speaks volumes. He loved the second and third books in this series just as much as the first. I read the first book with him and enjoyed it as well. The author makes nice use of quirky characters, an entertaining plot, and a great sense of humor to keep her readers turning page after page. My son said he thinks the author could easily write more books in this series because the ending of the third book didn't wrap everything up neatly. He is hoping she will follow up with more books on Homer and Dog. We will definitely read more books by this author whether in this series or another.

My son reads a lot and when he leaves me a book and says, "Mom, you've got to read this one" I know it is a going to be awesome. This is a delightful series that began with Smells like Dog. Relationships, who do you trust and why, mystery treasury hunt, accepting differences in ones self and others, this series has it all! Entertaining and yet it gets kids thinking about moral dilemmas and being true to oneself.

My grandson 7, and my granddaughter 9, love this series even though they usuall avoid anything that's longer than one of the Boxcar Children books. I guess it's a Basset on the cover that first attracted my granddaughter, but she loved it and read both the others. She talked about the stories so my grandson is in the middle of the second one and planning to read the third one as well.

Smells Like Pirates is a fantastic sequel! My 10-year-old son Max and I were so excited to receive your email alerting us to the release of this fun and suspenseful read. This third book in the "Dog" series does not disappoint. It is fast-paced and perfect for young adventurous minds. We always miss the characters when we finish each book and wonder what they're up to next!
