The book is narrated by Doodle, the bedbug-finding dog who has a unique outlook on the world due to his very sensitive sense of smell. It's good fun as Doodle tries to communicate with his boss and Molly while trying to maintain his image as a professional service dog.
Lest this sound like a too cutesy a doggie story, be assured that there is a real mystery in the book where Molly and Doodle each use their own talents to track down the answers and do it in an entertaining and believable way.
I found this to be a very engaging and well-told story for adult readers, but the bonus is that this book would also be enjoyed by 'tweens (or older kids) with an appropriate reading level.
A short excerpt from the next book in the Doodle series is included. I'm looking forward to reading more installments of Doodle's and Molly's adventures.
Recommended, especially for dog lovers or lovers of squeaky clean mysteries.
Ten year old Molly is smart; she will begin a special science school program at the end of the summer. Molly's hobby is taking pictures; she keeps a secret album of memories for her Mexican mother, who she has not seen since the age of three. When intruders steal Molly's album and her computer, Doodle is frustrated that he is unable to catch them. It does not take Molly long to realize that there might be a connection to work that her father Josh has recently completed. Like Doodle the young preteen is relentless in her will to solve the mystery. There will be unlikely connections to crime and family.
This story is told in the first “person” voice of Doodle. It is lots of fun to hear a dog's perspective and humor as to the quirky habits and personalities of humans. While the book touches on serious issues like family relationships, immigration, and divorce, the overall tone is upbeat making this book appropriate for preteens, teens and adults. The plot contains unexpected turns and characters are well-balanced. Recommended for mystery fans, animal lovers, and anyone who enjoys curling up with an interesting read for a few hours.
In this first installment of the Doodlebugged Mysteries, Kroupa introduces readers to an incredibly delightful doggie sleuth with a penchant for finding trouble. Doodle's voice is charming and completely in character. He uses his canine abilities -- heavy on scent, with an insatiable desire for treats -- to tell him things to which his human family is oblivious. Seeing the story unfold through Doodle's thoughts and observations made me laugh out loud over and over. The mystery is first-rate, too, with a touch of suspense that kept me turning pages. A triumphant beginning to a series that I hope will have many, many stories to come.
