Buster The Very Shy Dog, More Adventures With Phoebe

Buster the Very Shy Dog, More Adventures with Phoebe. Lisze Bechtold. 2018. April. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. 32 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Buster liked to hide his bones in secret places.

Premise/plot: There are two Buster and Phoebe stories in this level three early reader. The first story is "Bone Finding." Phoebe and Buster both like to hide bones in the yard. Both dogs think they have very special, unique teeth marks to identify their bones. This story is about what happens when a new concrete patio (or sidewalk?) is poured in their back yard. ALL the bones get mixed up. (Some might even be gone FOREVER.) How will the dogs decide who gets what?! The second story is "Buster and Phoebe Meet the Garbage Bandit." In this one, the two dogs work together to solve a mystery. WHO is responsible for making a mess with the garbage?! Can these two discover who is REALLY to blame? How will they solve such a tricky case?!

My thoughts: I enjoyed this one. I like both Buster and Phoebe. The stories were fun if not timely. This past week we've had several skunk incidences. I do NOT like skunks.
