Now that Andi and Bruce are no longer running a hotel for dogs, they decide to start up a new venture: a newspaper for dogs.

Hoping to use the money to buy a dog from a neighborhood bully, the two use it as a moneymaking technique. The newspaper is a big hit, but they attract some unwanted attention. When the newspaper gets out of hand, their parents shut it down.

But then the dogs who were featured in the paper start disappearing, and their abductors begin d

My Granddaughter talked me into reading this and I actually ended up liking it pretty well. I gave the book 3 stars but if I were a young reader I might have given it 4. Mrs Duncan doesn't insult the intelligence of kids by making the plot to simple. I think they would find many characters that they could relate to in their everyday lives.

This book was really cute, and I do recommend it for dog lovers. You don't really need to read the first book, but they're both really good!

It wasn't good at all.
Cheyanne Perry
News For Dogs by Lois Duncan is a pretty good book. However, I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Yes, it is kind of like Hotel For Dogs, but in a different form. I liked reading this book, but it's not the greatest. I would recommend it to people who love dogs and/or dog books. Honestly, it would make a great book for an average of a 5th grader. This would not be a book I would read again any time soon, however, may glance at it in the future to review. what this is mainly about is ...more

This is the second in the "dogs" series Duncan is writing. The first was "Hotel for Dogs." In this book Andi and Bruce decide to publish a newspaper for dogs. It's a big success, but they make a couple of mistakes and are shut down. Then dogs in their neighborhood start getting "dognapped" and they, with Aunt Alice's help, must find the dognappers.

I enjoyed this book, but it's not one of my favorites. Maybe if I were in 4th grade it would be, though.

I didn't like the way the kids' parents were

This is one of our state award nominees for grades 4-6 and I think it will be a big hit. First of all, it involves dogs - can't go wrong there. The main story revolves around the Dog newspaper that Andi and her brother Bruce start in their neighborhood. Bruce reluctantly joins in Andi's newspaper venture so he can earn money to buy a dog from his neighbor. The paper is more successful than they could have imagined. But success breeds jealousy also. Dogs begin to get kidnapped, and Bruce and Andi ...more

This was a pretty cute book. My ten year son and I started listening to this together on CD, but then he decided the narrator was too annoying, and didn't like her voices for the characters, so I read the rest to him. We had fun reading it. I think he was a little bored until the mystery started to really happen. He had the mystery figured out pretty early on, but I don't know if it was meant to be hard to figure out. I may give it more if I was his age, but I liked it well enough, but didn't lo ...more

I really liked this book once I got into it. It's definitely a younger oriented story. The first part is more about the newspaper. The second half is interesting because it talks about how they used tracking devices and computers and such to solve the mystery and catch the kidnappers. Once I got to that part, I just had to finish it! I'm normally not a mystery/crime solving person but it was light-hearted enough that I liked it anyway. I would reccommend it to anyone who loves dogs and wants an ...more

Great book for parents and a first grader to read together. This is the second book after Hotel for Dogs. The kids start a hilarious pet themed newsletter. However, intrigue and suspense commence when a neighborhood dog is kidnapped for ransom. The kids must uncover the dog nappers before the neighbors and themselves go broke trying to get their dogs back.

In my book News For Dogs was about Andi and her older brother Bruce, and their journey to make a newspaper for dogs in her neighborhood. Then something goes wrong when dognappers on the loose. They made the dogs's owner pay a ransom to get their dog back.
Ginny Daniels
News for Dogs is an easy read for reluctant readers because it is easy to make connections to for children who have dogs as pets. It contains a flourishing newspaper business that has a brief online success. It also has dognappers and a crime to solve.

I felt like this book had about 50 pages of unnecessary text, however, my girls loved it. I will advocate for anything that gets kids excited about reading.

I listened to this book on audio and it took me a little bit to "get into it" but once I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
