Bow Wow: 11/06/17
Bow Wow by Spencer Quinn is the third of the Bowser and Birdie books. Book two is Arf, which I own, but have in storage because of a move. I chose to read this book out of order.
Bowser and Birdie are on the hunt for evidence of a Bull Shark in the local swamp. The long time residents swear it's not possible, that their swamp is too far from the sea but a local boy swears he had an encounter with it. Now there's a bounty on this shark and it's bringing out all the weirdos.
For Birdie, though, the main concern isn't the shark, but for Snoozy, the guy who works in her grandmother's tackle shop. He's gone missing, after heading out to help a man search for the shark. Everyone else believes he's just off doing something because Snoozy's not the most reliable sort. Birdie, though, knows something else is going on and he's in danger.
This series is told from the first person point of view of Bowser the dog. This time I was so invested in Snoozy's disappearance that I found Bowser's asides distracting. I really wanted more of a third person point of view.
