" Super cute, if a little predictable. Stella loved it " said.

" What a precious book, the WellieWishers solve boredom when a dog comes to stay with Aunt Miranda. The instant the dog has disappeared they take the mystery on to find where the dog went. I love the innocence in this book with the minor misunderstanding, and by far was my favourite of all the WellieWisher books. It was pre ious and an entertaining read. " said.

"It's really more like 4.5 stars. I really enjoyed this story and totally recommend it, along with all of the other WellWishers books.

Like the rest of the series, this was a really quick read for me (it took me about 20 minutes, before I left for work this morning). It's a great little story that a young reader could manage on their own. A small child would love to have this read to them by a parent or elder sibling, looking at the pictures and, maybe, following along with the words.

It's a cold, blustery winter day and the girls are wishing for something fun to happen. Who should appear but Aunt Miranda with a dog: Mr. E. She's dog-sitting for a friend who is out of the country and the girl volunteer to help her look after the dog. However, soon the dog disappears and it's up to the girls to find Mr. E.

The key to this mystery was something that I, as an older reader, figured out pretty quickly. However, it's just the right speed for the target audience. I loved the reveal at the end, because it did incorporate something that surprised me (always fun with mysteries).

I'm really glad that I own the entire series and I could, honestly, see re-reading them for fun. As with the previous two books, there's a bit of subtle product placement in the story. This is actually a plus for me - since it helps tie the dolls and their accessories firmly with the books. Personally, I'd love a little Mr. E dog for my Wellie Wisher.

" That "surprise" twist/ending was cute. " said.

"Not-quite-easy-reader story of several girls (American Girl dolls, modern version) without distinct personalities (the introduction insists that their goal is to learn to be good friends, so perhaps part of that is effacing the self), this looks like a chapter book but really should fit a new reader, with simple declarative sentences and a tv-show sense of dialogue. The plot revolves around a visiting dog who disappears, and the girls work on finding it, being sure it is “still in the garden” which is more like a nature preserve wonderland as shown on the map. Better than much drivel aimed at new readers and the artwork is nice, Trixie announced each time her doll ( the one she owns) appeared, so perhaps children supply their own personalities for the bland characters, or perhaps her familiarity with the genre that uses licensed characters has conditioned her to supply what easy readers lack. And at least PJ Masks did not appear here." said.
