The Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Award-winning series is back

"Entertaining reading for the newest generation of detectives." --Kirkus Reviews

A new entry in the laugh-out-loud detective series for early chapter book readers starring lovable dog King and his human girl Kayla From the Geisel Honor Award-winning team of Dori Hillestad Butler and Nancy Meyers.

When Jillian's dog, Thor, is accused of digging up Mr. Gary's garden, King and Kayla put their detective skills to work to clear his name. At the scene of the crime, Kayla picks up several clues--there is too much damage for a small dog like Thor to have caused, and several half-eaten vegetables are scattered on the ground. King also finds a clue: A witness to the crime tells King that the culprit is a "new guy" who likes to fight. But who could that be? And can they track down this new guy and clear Thor's name?

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 transitioning from easy readers to beginning chapter books. Great for introducing mysteries and the important concepts of fact gathering, list making, clues, and analytical thinking.
