King & Kayla and the Case of the Unhappy Neighbor

Part of King & Kayla

by Dori Hillestad Butler
illustrated by Nancy Meyers

A lovable dog helps his human girl solve a mystery.

Thor has been accused of wrecking Mr. Gary’s yard—knocking over trash cans, eating the vegetables out of the garden, and pooping. But King and Kayla, with the help of some other neighbors, are determined to clear his name, using a wide variety of familiar and new detecting skills.

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.
