Chet is a kid who's on a journey that can be tough to take. He's not part of the 'in' crowd and he's not a great 'talent' in sport either. He's bullied by kids who are shallow (I hate bullies) and he doesn't have the confidence to stand up to them. Chet's best friends are his pets. They love him unconditionally.

Then along comes Douglass, a brainy nerd who is very comfortable with his own self. He also has a lack of friends, but he sees that as a positive. He can concentrate on things he enjoys -

The Pet Finder Kid -Catnapped by Scott Clements
5 STARS

The Pet Finder Kid is entertaining,funny,mystery novel. I loved the characters.
The plot was good. I remember some of those feelings the kids faced in JR. High School.
Chet Parker feels that his pet Zoey is his only friend that he has. He is not good in sports,awkard talking to girls.
When Zoey was a puppy she needed help to survive and the Vet was going to give her a shot of DNA of a bigger dog. Thier was a accident and Chet got the shot. He

this is a cute mystery for young readers. The main character, Chet, thinks he only has one friend, but finds out he really does have more. (oh, didn't we all feel that way in middle school!?). The story has some cute giggle moments --I particularly liked it when Douglass said "he is the dorky kid I am his nerdy friend" I admit, I loved Douglass.
Chet is smart enough to solve the mystery of his friends cat but typically middle-school boy-can't figure out why Stephanie stares at him'! soooo funny!

Utterly fantastic! As a cat mommy to not one but two Mr. Fluffy Pants of my own this grabbed my attention immediately and I just had to read it. It's a great book for the kids for sure, but there are some fantastic references that the parents will pick up on too and thoroughly enjoy. Once again Scott hits it out of the park.

I enjoyed this. It was a cute mystery, and an enjoyable read. I liked the characters in the book, as well as the humor. I decided that Chet reminded me of a cross between John Grisham's Theodore Boone (he's a kid lawyer, and there is always at least one scene involging animal court) and Encyclopedia Brown (with Douglass' help and scientific references, of course!) Well done!

This is a very enjoyable read. It reminds us that we accept our real friends for who they are and that our friends are always with us through good and bad. This is one of those stories that leave you smiling at the end. I am hoping that there are more adventures of “That Pet Finder Kid.”

This book had me begging to see the little guy succeed! Who hasn't wondered where they fit in this mixed up world. The relationship between this boy and his dog is touching, and this book is a real triumph for second time middle-grade author Scott Clements!

Oh wait, I'm second time middle-grade author Scott Clements... I think my view may be a bit skewed... more importantly, what do you think?!

Once upon a time, there was a young boy living in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. As the youngest of three children, the boy was small. He watched from off stage as his sister danced and twirled on stage in whatever production his mother’s ballet company was performing. The boy and his brother worked with their father to build sets, hang lights, and do whatever technical things needed to be accomplishe ...more
