Mike Adams has always been a pretty average kid. He hates homework, love sports, and spends a lot of his day bugging his twin sister Maddie—because, after all, she deserves it.
But one day, everything changes. Nic Chang’s dog goes missing.
Mike, his sister and their two best friends join forces to search for the truth and, with it, the missing pet. Will Mike and Maddie find a way to put their differences aside and save the day? And just where did that dog-gone labradoodle go?
Put your thinking caps on and prepare to find the answers in the premier installment of The Pet Shop Society, a brand new mystery series for readers aged 7-11.

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
Mike is an average kid with a twin sister, Maddie, and they get along (or don’t) just like any normal brother and sister. But they put their differences aside to help their new neighbor, Nic, find her lost dog. Together, with their best friends, they solve the mystery of the missing pooch.
This is a good chapter book for younger readers. Not only is it fun reading but it’s a mystery. Who doesn’t like a good mystery? It’s also the first book in the Pet Shop Society, which the kids named their group after they solved the mystery of the missing dog, so there are going to be more of these mysteries. I believe any young reader would enjoy this book and it would be fun for them to have a series of the Pet Shop Society to read.
About the Author
The book that changed Emlyn’s life is Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crocket Johnson. It opened her eyes to the world that could exist if only she was willing to create it—a lesson she has never forgotten. Maybe that’s why she loves writing her Bird Brain Book series for children so much!
Emlyn’s first novel, Farsighted, won the prestigious Writer’s Digest Self-Published Novel of the Year award in 2012 for the YA category. She now writes most of her fiction under her real name, Melissa Storm.
