About the Book:
Dogs are disappearing in her neighborhood, and Maggie Brooklyn Sinclair

a professional (okay, amateur) dog walker. Maggie may have a lot of
leads, but she never suspected her crush Milo could be involved. . . .
Margolis’s fans are flocking to this stylish tween series featuring a
clever and lovable new heroine.
About the Author:
LESLIE MARGOLIS is the author of more than fifty books for young
readers, including two Annabelle Stevens books: Boys Are Dogs and Girls
Acting Catty. She lives with her family in Park Slope, Brooklyn—which is
also the setting of her new series, the Maggie Brooklyn Mysteries.
This book is super cute. I’ve really started to fall in love with middle
grade mysteries. The mystery starts right at the beginning and kept me
guessing. I really didn’t know who the crook was until the end. There
are several mysteries all wrapped up together and happening at the same time. This would be confusing, but the author does a great job of keeping everything straight. Plus, it gives the story a little extra something because you have to figure out which mystery each clue is relevant to.
It was a
pretty fun read that middle grade children will enjoy.
