Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wagstaff City is in trouble, and its time for Martha to break out her doggie detective skills in this full-color, two-part Martha Speaks chapter book. First, she becomes a patrol dog for a day and exposes some smugglers of infested rutabagas that could destroy the citys crops. Then, Martha joins Helen to sniff out a thiefs identity in a rash of robberies. Its all tail-waggingly exciting…even the activities section and glossary of fun new vocabulary!

Synopsis:

When Helen Finney feeds alphabet soup to her dog, Martha, it goes straight up to her brain, and Martha begins to speak! But having a talking dog isn't always as much fun as it seems.
