    It's fun to imagine what it would be like if your mother were a veterinarian and you lived next door to her clinic helping her care for sick and injured animals every day What girl who loves animals wouldn't want to be in Amy Purvis's shoes? Spring break is starting so this Friday's sleepover party with her friends Liz Marion and Ellie will be their last get together until next Friday Liz and Marion have vacations planned but Amy and Ellie will be both staying home in Santa Vista At least Ellie's grandmother is moving in with Ellie this week but Amy won't have much to occupy her own time except volunteering at her mother's clinic and the Nancy Drew mystery she's reading This could be a disappointing spring break Then one evening Ms Sullivan a wealthy older woman not known for friendliness seeks out Amy's mother at home Ms Sullivan's St Bernard puppy Rufus has escaped by digging under the back fence of Ms Sullivan's house It's a stormy night and she fears for her dog out there alone Seeing the woman's distress Amy wonders if Ms Sullivan isn't as bad as she assumed The next morning while Amy's mother notifies the locals about the missing pet Amy follows up on a clue she's found Rufus leaves muddy paw prints wherever he shows up around town but he's always gone by the time Amy arrives Can she think of a way to predict where the puppy will go next? Enlisting Ellie to assist Amy emulates Nancy Drew's detective methodology studying the clues to deduce Rufus's whereabouts As days pass she knows the pup must be taking shelter somewhere but what kind of shelter would appeal to a hungry frisky puppy? The clues are all there for Amy and Ellie to solve their first pet mystery and learn that not every person who seems grouchy actually is Ms Sullivan could be the key to the next great adventure in Amy Liz Marion and Ellie's lives the founding of The Critter Club a much needed supplement in Santa Vista to Amy's mother's clinic It's the start of something special Amy and the Missing Puppy is a pleasantly atmospheric beginning for Callie Barkley's The Critter Club series The mystery is easy to follow and logical Marsha Riti's illustrations are attractive and we learn something about not judging books metaphorical or otherwise by their cover I see why The Critter Club is a popular series and I intend to read I'll see you at book two All About Ellie

    I recently started reading chapter books to my 4 year old and after reviewing several series this was the first series I picked We've gotten through 35 books in this series and haven't encountered any of the meanness or name calling you sometimes find in other series some of which is fine for older kids but not so much for a 4 year old The plots center around 1 or of the 4 main characters all girls as they solve a problem or 2 and help adorable fuzzy animals The girls tend to solve the problems with minimal help from adults pretty much all female and they save the day for whatever animals are in their care What's not to love? Especially if you are a little girl

    For kids ages 5 7 and they're playing MASH and talking about boyfriends huh? Read this to my 5 year old and the characters were unrelatable for the first few chapters The missing puppy however well that was a great plot in her mind

    We read this in two nights as a bed time story to five year old She pronounced it Let's read it again next week and Can you buy the next one? so I'd say it was a success She enjoyed the pictures and finding the clues Amy was talking about in them and seemed to really like both Amy and the mystery

    What's with the game of MASH in a book written to be read by 2nd or 3rd graders? Luckily that storyline goes nowhere and the mystery of finding a puppy takes over Once the mystery begins the story gets interesting and the stereotypical characters one girl likes reading another is dramatic blah blah no longer are so important

    Cute enough story of little girl friends during spring break One sets on a hunt to find a missing dog for her moms veterinary client Mostly solid examples of looking for details believing in yourself and not judging others However I read this to a 4 and 6 year old as recommended after completing the Sophie Mouse series which they loved My beef with this book is that it starts off with the little friends playing MASH and dreaming of who they will marry one day One of the girls gets assigned another girls older brother as a future husband and is very embarrassed by this news and turns red and hopes none of her friends notices Holy toxic messages Why the actual fuck is this an includable piece of the story in the year 2013 when this book was published This crap is so disappointing I highly doubt you’d find a book of little boys off to solve great mysteries starting with them discussing their future wives at all let alone in an embarrassed shroud of self doubt and denial Thankfully I skipped over this part and my kids didn’t seem to mind Beyond that blip the story is fairly innocuous but readable My kids weren’t begging to finish this one but sat through it and enjoyed the pictures along with the text We have the next story in the series so we shall see if that ones any better

    AMY AND THE MISSING PUPPY is the first book in the Critter Club Series It is the story of a group of friends who help solve the mystery of a missing dog I can't say I'm overwhelmed by the plot or the book in general but there are a few things I loved I loved the references to Nancy Drew I loved the positive girl role model in Amy a problem solving reader and good friend and in her mom a vet My six year old twins enjoyed it and immediately reuested that I get the second book This series isn't the absolute best I've ever read but it is one I would happily encourage my kids to keep reading

    My mom is starting to read chapter books to me I'm five This book was really cute it was also possibly my first mystery book Amy's friends all have fun plans for the summer but she doesn't She thinks she'll just read Nancy Drew books which my mom thinks sounds like a great way to spend a summer A real mystery comes her way though when Ms Sullivan's puppy goes missing Amy looks for clues and uses what she has learned from Nancy to find the puppy

    I've been looking for chapter books for my pre kinder people Stories that don't have stupidhatedumb words and preferably don't include anything that might scare them off from the adventures of school We love Mercy Watson and Frog and Toad This one works too A simple mystery I don't think they uite picked up on the clues but that's ok and a good group of kids We'll keep reading this one
