Detective LaRue

Have you ever been suspected of doing something? If you have not you should read this book. One day Mrs. Hibbins’ cats went missing. Ike Larue was suspected of doing it. The police were not working on that case because they were working on another case so Ike had to try and figure it out. Read this book to see if Ike figures the case out.

This book is unique because it is letters instead of words in a regular book. It feels like you are Mrs. Larue and you are reading the letters from Ike. I like Ike because he is a detective and I like detectives. I also like to pretend I am a detective. I also have another Ike book.

I recommend this book to someone who likes mystery books or dog books.
