Styles, Walker The Soccer Ball Monster Mystery (Rider Woofson #6) 119 pgs. Little Simon, 2016. $5.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G
The Pup Investigators pack must save a big soccer game. One team’s mascot disappears then the star player of the opposite team. There just might be a giant soccer ball involved and a Kooky Kicker machine. Will the members of the pack be able to solve the mystery or is there a real curse?
This is a cute addition to the series, that will additionally appeal to soccer fans. The dog-themed vocabulary and distinct character personalities add a lot of charm to this book. The first few have been popular with my first grade readers. The illustrations are adorable.
