Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–5—The four Alden children have a knack for finding mysteries wherever they go, and their dog's obedience class is no exception. When two dogs disappear from the class, suspicions abound. First, a man in the class is caught not telling the truth. Oddly, the teacher won't help look for the missing animals. Finally, there's the groomer, who happens to be present at each theft. The kids ask questions, take notes, and break down the list of suspects in a practiced, familiar style. Readers of the series should enjoy this addition.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA

About the Author

Robert Papp has won awards nationwide, but he is most proud of the reaction his paintings receive from children. He lives in Pennsylvania with his artist wife, Lisa, and their cat, Taffy.

Gertrude Chandler Warner was born in 1890 in Putnam, Connecticut, where she taught school and wrote The Boxcar Children because she had often imagined how delightful it would be to live in a caboose or freight car. Encouraged by its success, she went on to write eighteen more stories about the Alden Children.

Format: Paperback
I found this one of the most satisfying of recent Boxcar Children mysteries. The children are as clever as ever, and the mystery is good. I especially like the character Baker Brooks, who bakes bread for humans and dog biscuits for dogs. I felt very sad when his dog was stolen from the dog obedience school. I liked the way the different people expressed their love of dogs. Some had pedigreed dogs, others didn't. If you like the Boxcar Children series and if you like dogs and a good mystery, this book will satisfy you. Despite a few typographical errors in the book, the writing is good and the story is satisfying. I barely noticed the typos!

The Dog-Gone Mystery is a fun and entertaining story about a dog named Watch, some sleuthing kids, and dog obedience school. It's a delightful mystery with great characters of both canine and human variety. A wonderful addition to the series.

What could be more perfect than the Boxcar Children and dogs!! Dog-Gone Mystery kept my third grade son wanting to read and that's not always the case. Interesting characters both two and four legged.

Another book ghost written many years after the death of the creator of the original series (books 1-19). Somehow this one omits the words "created" by Gertrude Chandler Warner on the cover that clearly identify most of the latter books of the series which we have found to be of very varying quality. This one was particularly sloppily written and contains multiple out-and-out errors that are rather annoying to the reader. The editor might want to take a second look at scenes such as the one where Jessie has been left standing outside a store with Watch but then suddenly becomes part of the dialogue. Also errors such as on page 27 "They didn't see it the street." Enough said, this one is an easy pass -- spend your time and your $4.99 somewhere else and you'll be happier for it.

I've been a Boxcar Children fan both as a child and as a mother. This latest story still rings true to the original characters with some necessary and appropriate updating (cell phones, computers). I particularly like how Violet and Benny are written. They are the same thoughtful and endearing children I remember. The mystery in this story is well done, and kept even me guessing for quite some time.
