Smells Like Treasure: 05/09/22
Smells Like Treasure by Suzanne Selfors is the second book in the Smells Like Dog trilogy. While I've been better about reading and reviewing series books in order, this book is a throwback to my earlier blogging days.
In this second book Homer has just gotten Dog. He knows the dog only has one talent, smelling treasure. But what's the son of a goat farmer going to do with such a dog? Especially when the county fair is up and running!
A bad fortune, though, sets Homer onto a journey of a lifetime and one that could finally prove once and for all that he should have his grandfather's spot in the treasure hunting society. He, though, is up against his rival again.
Ultimately this novel becomes something like a two kid, two pet, two adult homage to It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963) with a final destination that's akin to the island in The Twenty-One Balloons by William Pène Du Bois (1947).
Readers who enjoy this series and want something more, I recommend the Winterhouse trilogy by Ben Guterson.
