Child-me liked this book because of the animals and wanting my own shelter in the backyard. Adult-me is reacting to all the misfiling of paperwork and cringing. Still a cute book though.

One of my favorite childhood series. I read over a hundred of them. The first 50 or so were in order; after that I read whatever book I could get my hands on :)

I like that the Alden's are helping out at the animal shelter. There are always new animals. I don't like that the animal shelter has to be closed because the land it is on is to be sold. The animal shelter and a house are going to be sold. I like that the Alden's fin.d the person that owns the house and the land the animal shelter was on.
Sometimes its fun to go back and read a childhood favorite. And it's a good fast read for those days when I need something, but don't want to start anything too involved.
The Animal Shelter Mystery is a good mysterious book about 4 kids trying to solve an animal mystery!
