The Buddy Files: The Case of the Library Monster

by Dori Hillestad Butler (Author)

140 pages

Booktalk: Buddy is a therapy dog, so kids read him books in the school library. Who knew he would find a mystery to solve there too?

Snippet:

Here are some of the reasons I think there could be a ghost here:

  • I’ve seen doors close all by themselves.
  • I’ve felt cold air ripple through my fur.
  • And just eleventy-two days ago (or maybe yesterday) I heard strange noises under the floor in the library. Like a ghost was trying to get out!
