Yet another fun and fair mystery. I was kept guessing till (almost) the very end. On the minus side, it does reuse ideas of an earlier book. On the plus side, it closes with a terrific sentimental scene.

Back cover blurb:

"Dogs are disappearing in the village where the Secret Seven live! But the Seven are too busy quarreling to investigate! Then poor Scamper disappears..."

I read the Galaxy Children's Large Print Edition, ISBN 0-7540-6152-3, 134 pages.

It was a little bit boring at the starting but it was a exciting story at the end.
I really enjoyed this one. There were enough red herrings that I even second guessed my own predictions. I got a bit choked up at the end.

**Interview with my kids**
Me: What did you think of that one?
Him: Super awesome dawesome sawsome.
Her: Dood (Good).
Me: What was your favourite bit?
Him: When the dogs came home.
Her: When Damper (Scamper) come home.
Me: Which dog was your favourite?
Him: Scamper! I wish my dog was Scamper.
Her: Damper (Scamper).
Okay fine yeah. They had me guessing! It was good fun!

Enid Blyton is an amazing childrens author, bestselling in the
world. Although almost undiscovered by Americans.

This series (The Secret Seven) Features 7 children who form a
backyard club. They love to have meetings with Secret
Passwords, etc. Soon, they begin to fall into mysteries. This
series is for the younger reader than the other series Enid
Blyton wrote for children. 8-10 years old maybe.
Great reading. introduce your children to Enid Blyton today!
Enid Blyton was my favorite author as a child. There's a reason behind all this. I simply love her writing. She's definitely inspirational. Even though I'm too old for The Secret Seven books, I really enjoyed this book and thought it was well-written and crafted.
these books i grew up with. i wanted to be a part of their adventures and i was when i read them. i reccommend these books for any child under 10.
I has been a while scince i read these books so i can't give a proper review.
I can feel the sense of excitement and at last,exhilaration as I read this book,reading how the seven children solve mysteries which I felt was unsolvable for them.
Dogs are being stolen all over the village and poor old Scamper is one of them, although he was probably glad to get away from pompous Peter for a while!

i wonder if kid today read these books then make little secret clubs just like my friends and I did as a child?
Good grief, not Scamper! Imagine if someone stole Timmy! Wait, did anyone ever steal Timmy?
