Collar Cases #1: Case of the Robbed Recipe

A dog detective. A beloved baker. A terrible theft. Are the treats gone forever?

Alex Digger adores Grandma Basset’s treats. A terrible theft threatens the future of her business. Alex must find the thief before the loss forces Grandma Basset to shut her doors.

Is the thief disgruntled marketing head Dotty Dipstick, who quit that morning over “creative” disagreements?

Is it Robert Roland, the suspiciously evasive Chief Flavor Engineer?

Or perhaps someone even more sinister lurks beneath the small town peace.

Mittens and Alex may be the most famous investigative reporters at the Bowwow Bark, but they’ll need all their wits to crack this case. Otherwise, Alex just might starve!

“[A] lively, fast-paced story kids will love. Young readers will be drawn into the mystery [and] the banter between tough-as-nails Mittens and her faithfully-hungry partner, Alex. Perfect for the child who loves animals, mysteries, and above all, cookies.”
