Mr. Beagle and the Georgestown Mystery
by Lori Doody
It seemed a cat burglar had been breaking into houses all over Georgestown. The strange thing was, the thief wasn't stealing valuables like piggy banks or art. No, the thief was only taking storybooks!
When he decides to visit his cousin Georgie, Mr. Beagle is not looking for a new mystery to solve—but he finds one none the less. Books have been going missing in the neighborhood, and not just any books… storybooks. Of course, Mr. Beagle’s keen nose and sharp eyes help him find the answer.
In this delightful picture book, a follow-up to Mr. Beagle Goes to Rabbittown, Lori Doody has her quirky canine sleuth solve a new puzzle and celebrates the importance of stories in the lives of us all.
