The Trouble with Chickens by Doreen Cronin

“J.J. Tully, retired search-and-rescue dog, is one tough cookie—laconic, unflappable, and master of speech noir: ‘Sometimes there’s a plan, sometime’s there’s only adrenaline. Sometimes adrenaline is all you need.’ He is lured out of retirement by a determined chicken who promises him a cheeseburger if he’ll take on the case of her kidnapped offspring.…Tidily embedded clues, a generous scattering of vignette and full-page illustrations, a dandy plot twist, and a cast of hilarious characters add up to a treat of particular delight to fans of the mystery genre, dog lovers, and the chicken positive.” —The Horn Book. Grades 3–5.
