Why would anyone break into 19 Gentilly Lane? That's where the Gaux family lives, and everyone knows they have nothing worth stealing. More important, the house is usually guarded by Birdie Gaux's dog, Bowser, a large and handsome fellow with a big set of sharp teeth.
Now Birdie is looking worried and Bowser is on the trail of something rotten. Who was behind the break in? Why is a girl with green hair asking odd questions about what happened to Birdie's dad, a policeman who was killed in the line of duty years ago? Worst of all, why is the whole town starting to stink of limeade aftershave and CAT?!?
The death of Birdie's father may be a cold case, but Bowser can tell it's heating up fast. Someone is coming after Birdie and her family, and Bowser must be ready to protect them from anything. Even that awful cat.

As always, I love Chet and Bernie, and Birdie and Bowser. I realize I'm a 58 year old reading a book for youth. But Bowser makes it all worth the read. I can just imagine my dogs thinking the way Chet and Bowser do. I love the way they lose control of their behavior before they know it. I think the characters reflect astute dog observation and imagination by the author. Reading one of these books is always a treat. I can't wait for the next one.
I just finished this. I am a boomer who is young at heart. I enjoyed this more than the first in the series. Birdie's mother is home. I would love to have a dog like Browser if he wouldn't eat me out of house and home. There are a lot of great dogs in shelters waiting for someone to adopt them. That's another reason why I love this series. Bowser is a shelter dog. His job is security, but his purpose is to take care of Birdie.
Such a pleasure that Spencer Quinn has given kids a couple of heroes like Chet and Bernie. Birdie and Bowser are just as appealing, and the stories are solid mysteries. Great book for kids, but I enjoyed it immensely, too.
