Book of the week - October 2nd - October 9th, 2010

The Ham Heist (Scholastic)

Book of the week archives.

Because I have so many titles, most readers know only a fraction of my work. Book of the Week is an experimental page for interested readers to learn more about individual titles.

The Ham Heist is the twelfth title in the Jack Russell: Dog Detective series I co-write with my husband, Darrel. In this story, Jack's person, Sarge, is getting married. Auntie Tidge and her friends are preparing a feast, including a whole huge ham... It seems that everyone is highly interested in that ham, and Jack is determined that no one is going to heist it. Inevitably, someone does...

Illustrated by Janine Dawson, The Ham Heist is also available in overseas editions.
