I enjoyed reading Woof, by Spencer Quinn. It's a mystery for kids, but it's different from most of those.
It takes place in a village on the Louisiana Swamp, which is an uncommon setting.
But the most unusual thing about the book is that it's told from the point of view of a dog, Bowser. And he certainly experiences things differently than humans do.
The plot is exciting and some scary things happen to the kids, but Bowser's descriptions of what's going on is funny.
Spencer Quinn is obviously an extremely creative person, and this book will appeal to kids who enjoy mysteries and excitement, those who love dogs, and those who like humor.
Woof was published in 2015 and, with that many potential readers, Woof should become a best seller.
