Recent Comments "King & Kayla and the Case of the Missing Dog Treats"
Again I am dubious about this deserving the Geisel Honor medal but there is one factor that makes it a decent choice after all It is nothing that is written It is all about the illustrations that show an African American girl as the main character and her friend is a Caucasian girl AND not one word is mentioned about this We need books that simply show kids of different backgrounds being friends with each other without any fuss being made about this because it should be normal and fine The moth [...]

Told from the point of view of Kayla s dog, King, this easy reader whodunit searches for the thief responsible for missing homemade dog treats.Kayla, of course, suspects the innocent King, who cannot defend himself seeing as dogs and humans don t speak the same language King tries to convince Kayla that there is an intruder in their home, but again, Kayla can t understand him Children will identify with King s frustration to plead his case King is eventually vindicated, as a stray cat is discove [...]

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this The dog s voice drew me in I enjoyed his enthusiasm and frustration It might not ring true to life I can t imagine any dog smelling a cat in its house and not tearing off after it , but a fun read with the extra bonus of an African American main character.
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.Wow, this was even cuter than I thought it would be I thought it would be a picture book, but it is like a very short chapter book I do want to read the other Kayla King books now Yes, there are apparently of them I was also a bit worried, the POV of the book is the dog We see what he thinks, what he says Why was I worried Because I was thinking this would be a book that would either have an annoying MC, or that it adds a magi [...]

A gentle mystery in 5 chapters, told from the POV of the dog King and her human Kayla who sometimes misunderstands her The first in a series, this is for those who are just graduating out of the Early Reader section so it has at least half or of each page as pictures with lots of white space This gets extra points for having the main human character be a person of color as just a normal kid with no commentary about it.
I skimmed through this on a new book cart, along with another King Kayla book These cute mystery early chapter books are told from the perspective of King, a dog, about different mysteries he and his owner Kayla must solve It s charming and cute, perfect for a reader on the border between early readers and early chapters Best for ages 6 9.
This is a great beginning reader chapter book It is a cute story told from the perspective of the dog, King There are missing dog treats, and two dogs in the house King knows he didn t take them, but the other dog is too small to reach the treats on the counter Who could be the thief This will be a fun book to share with Kindergarten and first graders for sure
Dog stories are almost always popular This is a dog story for students who think they are ready for chapter books Told in the voice of the dog, the vocabulary is simple but not condescending Humor, appealing illustrations, and short chapters make it the beginning of a good series to enjoy with K 2nd graders.
Kayla s dog, King, will warm the hearts of new readers who are ready for short chapter books He is the narrator for the new series of mystery books called King and Kayla His curiosity and detective skills will certainly keep children age 5 7 entertained.
This book is good on a bunch of levels First it is a great early chapter book It uses reason and logic to solve mysteries I has friends, cats and dogsetty much a perfect package They are making me hungry as I too love peanut butter cookies
This was a delightful early reader mystery told from the King s Kayla s dog perspective The inner dialogue and facial expressions of King literally had me laughing out loud This will be a great series for K 3 readers
Told from King s point of view, Kayla has been making baking peanut butter dog treats for a friend who has a new puppy and now some are missing Kayla suspects that King is the culprit but he doesn t have peanut butter breath Now it s time for an investigation
This book is genuinely funny and has very likable characters A delight to read.
This is a perfectly fine early reader, with bonus points for including racial diversity Still have my curmudgeon hat on and it bugs me that the solution to the mystery is highly improbable.
Great story, sweet dog, humorous.
This time the duo must track down an intruder thief.
This is a beginning chapter book series that reminds me of Cam Jamsen or Bones The mystery is simple and is told from the perspective of the dog.
