Description

From the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Award-Winning Series!

This fun, laugh-out-loud early chapter book series follows lovable dog King and his human girl Kayla as they solve mysteries. From the Geisel Honor Award-winning team of Dori Hillestad Butler and Nancy Meyers.

“Confusion, mischief, and silliness abound.” ―Kirkus Reviews

King and Kayla are playing fetch with their friends, Jillian and Thor. Jillian throws King’s favorite ball too hard, and now it’s gone missing! King and Kayla must put together clues to figure out where it went―and who has it.

With simple, straightforward language and great verbal and visual humor, the King & Kayla series from Geisel Honor Award-winning team Dori Hillestad Butler and Nancy Meyers is perfect for newly independent readers. Great for introducing mysteries, analytical thinking, and the important tools of detective work.

Reviews

“Confusion, mischief, and silliness abound. Kids who don’t always have the vocabulary to express themselves will sympathize with this waggish pup and his earnest desire to be understood by his human.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Budding detectives will have the benefit of both King’s discoveries and Kayla’s reasoning as they piece together the clues…. A welcome addition to collections supporting the transition from picture books to chapter books, this title will appeal to both dog lovers and mystery buffs.” ―School Library Journal
