    1. My son and I are really enjoying this series. Even if the last chapter in this book made me tear up a bit.

    2. It had been kind of special for me to read dog stories for quite a long time in the past. I even often wept on TV dramas with a dog. I lost my dog when I was around seven. It was a snowy day. He liked snow as most Akita dogs do. So, my father took his leash off the collar to let him play on his own. Back then the laws were not so strict on taking care of our dogs. He didn't come back. We searched him for days. He seemed to run after a delivery guy of newspaper or milk the next morning. Maybe I'm [...]

    3. I often like reading the books my nephew borrows from the library, just to see what kind of books he reads. So naturally at first glance, I figured this was like the other books- a bit silly, whimsical, maybe fanciful or sometimes altogether pointless but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this book had more gravitas than your average children's book. I mean borderline heavy almost and the story genuinely tugs at your heartstrings that it would give any Disney flick a run for their mone [...]

    4. I love this early chapter book series by Dori Hillestad Butler! More importantly, my eight year old does. In this book, Buddy (formerly known as King) finally tracks down his first owner Kayla and finds out why he was put in the P-O-U-N-D. But then, what to do? Should he go back to Kayla or stay with his new owner, Connor, who also needs him?

    5. It was so good. Dog lovers must read this. I've never had a dog, but enjoyed these three books a lot. Finally King/Buddy could his long lost human Kayla and came to a conclusion about which human he's going to live with. I hope the author will write more Buddy books and I'm sure there will be, because Buddy has just passed a test to become a therapy dog at school.

    6. The mystery of Buddy's missing family is carried through the first three books. The plots are well organized and at the right level for six- to nine-year-old readers. I enjoyed the first three books immensely and look forward to reading the next ones. I can't wait to see what my grandchildren think. The ONLY reason I don't rate these a 5 is . . . I don't know!

    7. Buddy is a mystery solving doga skill he learned from his previous owner. He now puts his skills to use to find his old family because he is sure they are not "That Word" (dead). He's been adopted by a nice new family that is training him to be a therapy dog so he can go to school and be read to.

    8. Buddy finally has a real lead on his missing family, who he has been trying to find since he was adopted by his new humans. Folks working in animal rescue and shelters know how heartbroken animals can become when abandoned, but Buddy manages to keep his spirits up while hoping beyond hope to find his humans.

    9. Read to my son (7-yr old) he LOVED it (he's also a dog-lover)The story is written from the dog's point of view & by changing my voice a few times - with each dog made it TONS of fun for me & my boys!! :) My prayer is she will add more books to this collection! :)

    10. I've been reading books from this series with my 7yr old. She loves them and the way they "keep her guessing". I find them predictable of course but I love reading with her and I love that she enjoys them.

    11. These are some very good quality early chapter books. I've read #1 and #3 (whoops, didn't realize we skipped 2) aloud to my four year old, and we both loved them. Real stories that aren't dumb or kiddie. Great character.

    12. I really enjoyed reading the first in this series to my second gradersI wanted to read this to find out what happened Buddy's familyte story, but raps up a little too neatlyybe it is better as a read aloud?

    13. I'm glad that we finally solved the case of what happened to Buddy's family. Interesting for a series to make a case carry over for three books, but I liked it. I'm glad Buddy found his old family and knows what happened to them. They aren't, that word, that Mouse always wants to say.

    14. In book 3 of the Buddy Files series, Buddy finally figures out the answer to what has happened to his first family.

    15. This is my favorite series. In this case, Buddy solved most biggest mystery lately, so I'm very worried the series might be final. It was wrong, series will be continued!!!

    16. Buddy finally solves the mystery of what happened to his former family in the third installment of this fun little series. Still liking it

    17. I really like how real the dog seems. His thought processes and mannerisms are really well-matched with current thoughts on dog psychology and behavior, despite being a book for young kids.
