Summary:

"Spencer Quinn speaks two languages--suspense and dog--fluently."--Stephen King

Bowser is a dog detective on the loose, paired with an eleven-year-old girl, Birdie. Bowser and Birdie live on the Louisiana coast with Birdie's Grammy. When a prize stuffed marlin is stolen from Grammy's bait and tackle shop, Birdie and Bowser decide to take on the case. But what looks like a straightforward break-in soon becomes as tangled as a tourist's fishing line. Was Grammy hiding a treasure map in the marlin? What's up with Old Man Straker, owner of a rival tackle shop, and his juvenile delinquent son? And most sinister of all, why does it suddenly look as if someone wants to harm Birdie? Told entirely from Bowser's hilarious dog point of view, WOOF launches a brand-new, slightly slobbery, but utterly winning detective duo.

    This book was wonderful. Spencer Quinn told an engaginging story, but James Frangione's narration brought it to delightful, realistic life! Of course dogs talk--and think--like that! He nailed it! I listened to this children's book as an adult and it has been my favorite read of the summer. Now to purchase it for my 11year old great neice--who just rescued Max.

  • Gina Truitt

    This is a book about a young girl told from the perspective of her lovable mutt. and boy does it capture the essence of a dog.

  • Jackie Sites

    I listen to my audio books while walking my dogs at the dog park. The book was enjoyable, held my attention, and made me wonder what my dogs are thinking! I will get the sequel soon. Even though I'm an adult, I felt it was a great book, and recommend it for all ages!

    I really enjoyed this book. I got lots of laughs out of it. Was great being from the dogs point of view! Made it a lot funnier.

  • Nancy Krehlik

    Humor, suspense, a wonderful dog, and good human characters, over all a fun book for kids. I also liked the details and information brought about from the setting (swamp country, Louisiana). The narrator was also good.

  • Nelly Navarro-Britt

    Funny story since the dog is narrator. Cute book for kids. Main character is 11 years old. Book reader did a great job!
