Four Stars (out of Five)
This book takes an authentic issue and wraps it in a nicely woven story that doesn't talk
down to children. Young readers will enjoy the lively banter among the animals, especially
between Moc and the dogs. Canter has come up with a formula that that should be equally successful in future books featuring these two curious pups. Upper elementary-aged students will most likely enjoy the adventures of Bennett and Lola and may not even realize they are learning science and history facts at thesame time. - ForeWord Clarion

Coral Ann Howder `Cora" adopts two lovable Chihuahuas and takes them to Bald Head Island as she writes her book. Before long both dogs pick an alias and set off to solve a crime with a few of their new island animal friends. Bennett aka Chief Inspector Brown and Lola aka Sergeant Starfoot try to stop turtle traffickers, who are stealing and selling turtle eggs. The mishaps and funny dialogue are perfect for children to want to read over and over.
The writing in hilariously funny and kids will want to read it over and over again.Perfect for birthdays or a just because gift.
Animals always have a special place in a child's heart, and nowhere better than this book.
The island the author takes you to is quite wonderful, and certainly excited my young boy I read the book to.
With delightful characters and a plot full of clever twists, this is a book for anyone young at heart.
I recommend this book for all parents with young children since it teaches many good values.
What a great way to not only tell a lovely story but to also teach children about conservation and protecting endangered species such as the sea turtles.
This is an adorable book, perfect for animal lovers who want a cheerful and engaging piece of mind candy. The author obviously knows Chihuahuas, and has their personalities down pat – somewhere between “Hey, food!” and “I'll bite your ankles off even if you ARE twenty times my size!” The other animals' personalities are reasonably believable, as long as you accept the talking-intelligent-animal trope in the first place. The story is charmingly told and entertaining, the editing is good, and the plot moves energetically along without getting bogged down in detail. The author's affection for the island and its animals is clearly evident.
There isn't much depth to this book, but there isn't meant to be. It can be a bit simplistic, with the good-vs.-evil lines clearly drawn, and sometimes the conflicts and dangers in the book can seem a bit too easily or suddenly solved. It is not a book to be read for intellectual stimulation or deep commentary on the issues of the day, but then, there's nothing wrong with that, either. The author does tout conservation and environmental preservation, but not in a particularly preachy or heavy-handed way.
If you love animals, and want to pass a pleasant hour or two inside the mind of a particularly intelligent Chihuahua, THE ADVENTURES OF STARFOOT AND BROWN is an entertaining read.

My daughter loves this story. It's a quick an easy read for her, and nothing too complicated for her to read on her own. It's got really good illustrations as well to help with the story telling. Chapters are short and well planned out in kid sized chunks. Fairly fast paced with some very lovable characters that leave a little girl wishing her dogs talked or were as cool as the ones in the story.
Great read, awesome price, don't miss out on this book for your little one.
