J. J. Tully is a former search-and-rescue dog who is trying to enjoy his retirement after years of performing daring missions saving lives. So he's not terribly impressed when two chicks named Dirt and Sugar (who look like popcorn on legs) and their chicken mom show up demanding his help to track down their missing siblings.
But driven by the promise of a cheeseburger, J.J. begins to track down clues. Is Vince the Funnel hiding something? Are there dark forces at work, or is J.J. not smelling the evidence that's right in front of him?

This is a cute children's book that I found entertaining as an adult. A short, quick listen, and I was thoroughly entertained the entire time. I loved the character of J.J. - he was a perfect mix of funny, sarcastic and a "softie."
Retired former magazine editor who is working harder than ever as Mr. Dad to his 13-year-old daughter.
This was one of the 15 Sunshine State Books that my daughter hopes to read this school year. We listened to it together and the audible file enhanced the telling of the story. Listening and reading has improved my daughter's reading abilities. Recommend it.
My Daughter had to read this book for a project at school called Reading Games. It was fun filled book. Kept her attention and is fast paced. Recommended for kids in 3rd though 5th grade. :)
