2017 FAPA Silver Medalist for Children’s Chapter Books | Picture Perfect by D.G. Stern
While on a walk, Upton and his “human” father, Hank, hear the sound of fire engines speeding to a home
around the corner from which smoke is bellowing.
Quick work by firefighters eliminates any “real” damage to the house, but when it appears that the thermostat
had been turned up to high on a hot summer day, it looks like some serious investigation will be needed.
Aided by his assistant, Watson, and the rest of the Charles family, our canine detective is on the case.
Oh…Upton is a Bichon Frise (that’s “BEE-shon free-ZEY”), a little white dog, and his super sleuth skills will be challenged.
Accompany Upton, Watson, the twins and Mr. Charles as they put together the pieces of the Picture Perfect.
