What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

The most winning junior detective ever in teen lit. (Take that, Nancy Drew!) –Midwest Children’s Book Review The Christmas parade gets furry in a hurry when three pranksters dressed as wise men toss some cats onto Sammy’s float. Dogs shoot off in all directions, and the prize Pomeranian Sammy’s supposed to be watching disappears. Turns out the darn fuzzball’s been kidnapped. The owner is demanding that Sammy find her doggone dog . . . and she’s a woman who knows how to get what she wants. But Sammy’s a pretty tough cookie herself. Dognappers, blackmailers, and wise men be warned! The Sammy Keyes mysteries are fast-paced, funny, thoroughly modern, and true whodunits. Each mystery is exciting and dramatic, but it’s the drama in Sammy’s personal life that keeps readers coming back to see what happens next with her love interest Casey, her soap-star mother, and her mysterious father.
