I thought this book was cute and very well written, great for readers age 7-8. Many boys and girls at that age would love a good mystery story about a missing chihuahua. The illustations were also very good.

Chihuahuas have gone missing from Salt Lake City. Who is responsible for their losses? Can it be Zack Rust, whose chihuahua has won all the preliminary heats for the Liberty Park chihuahua races but is beaten by Teddy Kreps’ chihuahua in the final preliminary race? Is it Sandra Hopkins, President of Save the Chihuahuas? It’s up to Addie May Jones to put her detection skills to use to find out who’s behind the heists in A. E. Cannon’s The Chihuahua Chase.

Told in the first person point of view, I

When Teddy's chihuahua Phantom goes missing, he and Addie May join forces to try to figure out what happened to the dog.

A good book for a younger reader reading at a higher level. I'd say story line is good for 1st/2nd grade, but reading level is 2nd/3rd. Simple story, a little mystery, likeable characters.

Read aloud to my daughters. They loved it. The story is set in Salt Lake and is a missing dog mystery, so what's not to love? It helped that the author goes to our church and is their Primary leader, too :) One warning if you read or give to your kids to read--in the first chapters she "outs" Santa Claus. I had to quickly skip that part, I'm not ready for that secret to be out at my house.

Again, I'm doing an author study, and this book was good, but still lower than the levels most of my fifth graders read. It's hard to judge a book for a younger audience when I'm stuck in my fifth grade mindset.

I picked this book up at the library. I think the author and illustrator are likely LDS judging by their family names and the short bio info provided on the book jacket. Kaitlyn and Taylor (8 and 6 years old now) loved this book. It was fun and very well written for this age group.

YAWN! The book is probably for six/seven year olds. Maybe the problem I had with it was that I thought it was a MG when it really has a plot more for an early chapter book.

Not a deep book, but sometimes you need a good 3rd grade book that would appeal to both boys and girls.
