The Missing Dog is Spotted

Missing Dog Diptych

Trevor Tower doesn’t worry too much about being short until he is assigned dog-walking duty with Loyola Louden, the tallest person in his class. But the dogs are a wonderful distraction, and even before Trevor and Loyla vow to solve the mystery of a missing spotted dog, they become good friends. In this standalone prequel to the acclaimed novel The Spotted Dog Last Seen, this novel gives readers another mystery to solve and a lost dog to find.

But does the missing dog even exist? Read an excerpt.
