My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy from iRead Book Tours. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

This is a cute book featuring Dr. Marsha who is a kangaroo. She and her helpers, Terence and Louie, go with her to Washington D.C. all the way from Australia to help solve a mystery.

Although they’re looking for missing hot dogs and marshmallows, it is mentioned that those are junk food and that eating healthy is the way to go. Eating healthy is mentioned several times, but it’s not the sole focus of the story. Solving the mystery is! Dr. Marsha and the Case of the Missing Hot Dogs and Marshmallows is a cute story with adorable and colorful illustrations. Young children will definitely enjoy it!

    Great review. I like that the book talks about healthy eating but stays fun for kids. I’ll be interested to see what other fun Doctor Marsha gets up to.
