The Buddy Files is a series aimed at beginning chapter book readers. It’s about a school therapy dog who solves mysteries. The books are told from the dog’s point of view. Each book is a stand-alone mystery and can be read and enjoyed alone.
But there’s another mystery arc that spans several books. For instance, Buddy discovers CLUES to what happened to his original family in books 1 and 2, but he doesn’t actually find out what happened to them until the end of book 3.
