Pansy in London: The Mystery of the Missing Puppy
Fans of Pansy the Poodle have a new illustrated adventure: Pansy in London: The Mystery of the Missing Puppy. A girl and her dog are detectives. In London, Avery takes her toy poodle, Pansy, to meet the Queen because the Queen has a missing puppy named Lily. The Queen has eight Corgis, all named after flowers. Pansy is named after a flower, too! Avery asks questions and Pansy follows the trail of clues. They find the flower page who took Lily from the palace to the Hyde Park Dog Show. The page wanted Lily to win the dog show so that he would be famous. The story has a happy ending.
Pansy and Avery visit many landmarks in London like Big Ben, the Tower of London, and Selfridge’s. I like the way the dogs are drawn, but the people’s faces are funny-looking, except for Avery’s. The drawings of buildings and landmarks are very detailed, like postcards. You can even buy a stuffed animal Pansy the Poodle to go with the book series. A kid who can read but still likes picture books about travel will enjoy Pansy’s adventures.
