Look the thief is getting away! Do you like puppies and mysteries? If you do this is the right book for you. Itís about a dog who is a detective named Jack Russell who is attempting to figure out who is trying to steal the sausages. To find out who is trying to steal the sausages read the book!

I really like this book. I would rate this book by giving it 5 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed the characters and thought Foxy was very suspicious because he was always behind the tent with the sausages in it. I also thought Jack Russell was determined to solve the mystery because he never gave up on finding the criminal. The story reminds me of my dog because he always tries to take my food.

I think this book will be good for students in second through fourth grade because it has 80 pages. It is not too hard and not too easy. If you enjoy mysteries this is the right book for you. It may interest you that Jack Russell, a dog, is a detective.
