DAVEY & DEREK JUNIOR DETECTIVES BOOK 4
THE CASE OF THE BROWN SCRAGGLY DOG
Davey and Derek Donato are at it again in this new book. In this case they come across a brown scraggly dog with blood on its paw but when the boys try to stop the dog, it runs away. Aunt Gigi is here once again to assist the boys with their magic and provide some new spells. Clues surface that suggest that someone may be injured and in need of help. The boys will have to use their skills and a little magic to solve this case.
The dog on the cover was my daughter’s dog for ten years. We lost her two years ago now. She was a sweet and affectionate dog and we all miss her terribly. By putting her on the cover we are keeping her memory alive.
This is book is part of the award-winning series for Young Adults/Preteens/Middle-Graders that has been enjoyed also by adults. This series has won five book awards, three Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards and two Reader’s Favorite Book Awards.
I have written five books in this series and plan to write more next year along with a spin-off using two of the characters in Book 5, Abby & Holly. These two girls will have their own mystery series and from time to time will meet up with Davey & Derek.
At one of my book signings I was asked to write a series for girls. I promised the young lady I would try. I always keep my promises. It may take a little longer than one might expect to fulfil these promises but I do my best with my busy schedule and other commitments.

5.0 out of 5 starsDelightful Story for Young Readers
ByMichelle Clements Jameson May 14, 2017
Format: Kindle Edition
Junior detectives, Davey and Derek Donato, are off again to solve another mystery with the help of Aunt Gigi’s magic and Mianna, the cat in Aunt Gigi’s crystal ball. The boys get into mischief as they try to discover what happened to the scraggly dog and how it’s paw got blood on it. The ending was a wonderful surprise and the kind of ending any child would love.
The author’s goal in writing books for children that bring to light life lessons that the children can learn from. These lessons include politeness (Davey and Derek are both polite boys), kindness (they are kind to the dog and to his owner, as well as to family and friends in this story), and sensitivity (they are concerned that their friend Mickey isn’t left out and that their mom doesn’t worry needlessly about them). Janice Spina accomplished her goal with The Case of the Brown Scraggly Dog.
This book is sure to delight. I highly recommend The Case of the Brown Scraggly Dog to young readers.
This book was gifted to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.
