Book Review - The Graveyard Hounds by Vi Hughes
Strange things begin to happen the night Mike and Annie take their dogs to the school park. First, Annie’s dog loses her bark, then the school playground burns down and next, the local church and graveyard burst into flames. What is causing these strange occurrences and why does the principal seem to know more than he is saying?
The Graveyard Hounds is a quick-paced mystery story for middle grade readers. Short chapters, charming illustrations, and lots of action kept me turning pages, even when I should have been cleaning the kitchen and making beds;)
Hughes has created brave, likeable characters and, as a former elementary school principal herself, reminds us why the word “pal” is part of principal! Buy Graveyard Hounds
