Anne Perry, the much-lauded author of two Victorian-set mystery series, has turned away from that time and place to produce a wonderfully humorous, charming story about a group of neighborhood detectives. Word has it that these creatures are based on her own menagerie of dogs and cats and other critters. This is, I believe, the third such episode featuring Daisy, a canine whose lineage is never quite defined, but who possesses immense common sense. In "Daisy and the Christmas Goose" she doesn't let the fact that she's not quite certain of just what is a goose slow down the hunt for one that is missing.
Frankly, I wish some enterprising publisher would produce an entire book of short stories about Daisy and her cohorts, both canine and feline, and other-ines as well. The voicing of these critters is impeccable, sort of an 'All Creatures Great and Small' but in reverse. They're nothing short of wonderful!
All the stories in this collection are eminently readable. Too bad they can't do more than one such anthology a year. Or else a bigger book, with more stories.
