Product Description


Move over Scooby-Doo… there’s a new mystery-solving Great Dane in town! All Honey the Great Dane ever wanted was a peaceful life – walking her human, checking Peemail at the park – but when neighbourhood puppies start disappearing, life takes a sinister turn. Why are dead scarab beetles found after each disappearance? Do the strange markings on a gravestone really spell out an ancient Egyptian curse? And what about Max, the Pit Bull with a murky past, who seems to be hiding secrets of his own…can Honey risk everything and trust him or will it cost her the chance to save the puppies? Perfect for fans of Erin Hunter’s ‘Warriors’ and ‘Survivors’ series. Kids & dog lovers of all ages will enjoy this action-packed mystery filled with suspense and humour! The ideal middle grade read or a book for parents and children to enjoy together, as well as a great choice for middle school teachers and librarians. I think this story is spot-on. It deals with important issues, but they are an integral part of the plot, and there is no ‘preaching’.”
