Dewey Mac Maker Mysteries: Dog Gone Dog Hardcover – October 6, 2015
Dewey Mac and the Case of the Dog Gone Dog features 12-yr-old Dewey McClain, a lover of science and math and invention...and not yet lover of girls. "Dewey Mac", as he's known by his friends, is a typical sixth-grader; he is terribly annoyed by his sister, he thinks his teacher is strange, he has a paper route... But Dewey has something else that's quite unique-- the ability to conceptualize and make whatever he needs in a certain situation. This talent comes in handy as a mystery unfolds in Dewey's community. Together with his friend (new kid Ched, who is often the comic relief to Dewey's seriousness), they create AKA-- Awesome Kid Agency. The team at AKA sneak, snoop, and invent their way to solving the crime. I don't want to give any spoilers, so you'll have to read for yourself to find out more! Dewey Mac review Throughout the story, there are prompts to reference the Detective Manual, an instruction book that details how to make each of Dewey's instructions-- in real life!! Sneak a peek and see which you'd like to build first. This is a great book, its tone reminding me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and the inventions and bad-guy-capturing sequences reminding me of Home Alone! --Crib Notes Blog

Hello! I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really loved your book. I’m on the third time reading it now and I really want to make the Claw Blaster. The book is really funny. I especially liked how Dewey Mac (Though I think Dewey McClain is a cool name :D) made a whoopee cushion and used smelly stink juice to end Steve-o and Janice’s relationship. It’s also pretty cool how Dewey uses everyday items to make awesome gadgets and how he knows a lot about technology and science. Its pretty funny how Zinc renamed a bunch of the school books like history got turned into His Underpants (But I like history a lot and if I was a lot stronger I’d knock Zinc’s teeth in.) and social studies got turned into so boring (I find social studies slightly interesting however.) Overall I think the book is really really great and I can’t wait for the next one. This is the first time I’ve won a prize and I cherish reading so this is one of the best prizes I could get.
